Oh. Fuck. Yeah.

Ok, I am, at this very moment, basking in some of the best mommy glow you can get your hands on.
Yes, *glow*... not blow!
Don't act like you didn't think it. One of you, I won't mention names (or IP addresses), found my blog by searching "mommy snorts coke" so I am on to you.
So, I just took my daughters to their second softball game. The first hour of the hour and a half game I was stuck in the stupid concession stand. LUCKILY I could see the field and if you were one of the people ordering a hamburger and I suddenly stopped listening to you and yelled "OH YES! GOOD HIT AMANDA!" or "RUNEMILEERUNRUNRUNRUN!" I am sorry.
At exactly 6:59:59pm, I grabbed my purse and bid the other concession stand dwellers a fond fair well and practically ran to the stands. I broke out my camera for a few shots of my girlys at bat and then put that thing away so I could concentrate on my yelling.
You see, yelling is part of the game. And so yell, I must.
Plus, the score was 4-2, not in our favor and after our horrible defeat (*cough cough* 14-1 *cough*) on Saturday, these girls needed some encouragement.
At 7:25 on the dot, the fifth inning was over and there are only six innings in LL softball (or an hour and a half, which ever comes first). They decided to let them go ahead and play the last inning since there wasn't another team after us needing the field.
This was excellent since the girls would have a shot at winning or tying or at the very least hitting. This was bad because the automatic start on my oven was set to start at 7:30 and my pizzas would be burnt.
I said 'fuck the pizzas, let 'em burn' (because I am a trooper) and watched the first girl go up to the plate. And do you know what she did? She knocked the shit out of that ball and made her way to first. Second girl struck out. Third girl was Amanda. Oh yeah. She misses the first and then the second pitch. We are all yelling at her that it's ok and she is going to nail the third one. And she fucking does. And then she runs her ass off and makes it to first while the other girl makes it to second. Then, Emilee. Now, Emilee hasn't hit a ball yet in a game so we are all telling her she can do it, just watch the ball. She misses the first and then nails the holy hell out of the second. The pitcher grabs it but she isn't sure whether to throw it to first or second. Finally she decides on first and chunks it just as Emilee slides, yes SLIDES into first. And as Emilee is sliding, Amanda is rounding third and heading for home where she scores the WINNING RUN!
I was jumping up and down cheering and undoubtedly making a complete spectacle out of myself. Don't care though because my daughters so totally kick ass.

"I just got done reading the history lessons on your blog (yes, I've been lurking on your blog). All the respect I had for you...has increased, like, tenfold. I don't think I could have done it. To go through what you have and not only still be able to discuss it with such wit and poise, but also to raise those three gorgeous girls. You are truly an inspiration. You are honestly one of the strongest people I have ever known, either online or IRL. Thank you so much." -Stef
