Hi Travel Ball Parents and welcome to our site that was just hatched…oh, about 30 minutes ago. My husband and I have been chasing our kids, our time and our money from ball field to ball field for the past six years. They love it. And we love it. People seem to think we’re veterans at it because we constantly get questions from other parents ranging from “what bat should my seven year old be using” to “why is that coach acting like such a freaking jerk?” (The first one’s easier to answer than the second…unless the coach is your husband.)
Anyway, in doing a little research, I didn’t find any place online where parents can go to get their travel ball questions answered and receive guidance and suggestions from other moms and dads who are also muddling through this sports journey.
Over the next few days, we’ll be populating the site with all kinds of useful info, setting up menus, categories, links and all that other stuff that will make travelballparents.com a go-to resource for people like you and me.
Sound good? Great!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I promise there will be more to see tomorrow.
Angela is also a freelance writer known to tackle the tougher topics…like why do cat food makers shape the morsels like fish or chicken? Do cats really care? Exactly how many of something is “more than you can shake a stick at?” And then there’s her ongoing paranoia that her house smells like animals and she's gone nose blind.
WordPress says that I’m supposed to tell you a few things about myself so that you’ll want to read more of my posts. Here goes.
My name is Angela Weight. I live in Midlothian, VA with my husband James, two sons, Andrew and Jack, dogs Katie and Ayla and cat, Callie. We’re new to the area…transplants from the Dublin, GA area, where I grew up. My husband has a job that pays the bills so I can sit around and obsess about cat food shapes and how my house smells. I also have this goal of seeing all 50 states by the time I’m 50. I’m 43 now and have been to 45 of them. If you have any friends or family in Vermont, Rhode Island, Oklahoma, North Dakota or Alaska who’d like us to come visit (and maybe pay for it) let me know.
My sons (ages 16 and 11) play a ridiculous amount of baseball. If I’m not at home or out buying scented wax warmer cubes, I’m probably at a baseball field somewhere in Suburbia. In fact, I have to leave now to take Jack to practice. I’ll write more later.
Oh, another thing you need to know. We’re SF Giants fans. Crazy, fanatical Giants fans. I grew up a Braves fan, but converted when I married James who grew up in the Bay Area. That’s important.
Great! Now Jack is late for practice.
