I have been back in the dugout every game since this post. Things have been better. The coach had a talk with the kids about listening to me and I had a talk with a lot of the parents letting them know I would sit their kid out if they didn't straighten up. I think it was a good idea to have me go in there because now there is a familiar face in their at all times that they know they need to listen to.
I wanted to share with you my favorite comment from that post, it comes from Steph who I read and love to pieces. I'll be honest when I started to read her comment I got a little sad. I was worried you guys thought ill of me…but then I read on and remembered exactly why I love all of my readers so much. Steph, thank you a million times for making my day with this comment:
"I can't even believe you're asking about drinking beer in a dugout filled with little kids. WAAAAAY inappropriate. This is clearly a case of "fill the aquafina bottle with vodka." Or add some to your coke. Or gatorade if you want to be sporty:) Besides… it sounds like you're gonna need the hard stuff to be able to handle the kids haha"
