When shopping for Rhett's team belt and socks, etc. Thad decided he needed a "baseball belt". He slept in it and wore it to pre-school many days.
Then he discovered the existence of baseball gloves. Of course our choices were to buy him some or hear about it hourly for who knows how long. Again, he slept in them and wore them to school.......and we continued to wait for his season to start.
Then his first game 2 weekends ago.
It didn't take long for him to realize he was not fully equipped without baseball cleats. Don't worry, a trip to the thrift store for a $3 pair and he's happy once again.
