As a busy working Mom life can get well, a bit hectic. Time is always of the essence and I never repeat never ever have enough time to do everything that I want to do. I am just one person, and however much I want to be considered a super hero , I’m not. I am just a sleep-deprived, coffee guzzling Mom who is always one step behind (or so it seems).
Now you would think with my busy life that I wouldn’t add more things to make it well, you know, busier. But I sign up my kids for everything they want to do (anything that keeps them from roaming the internet or playing video games all day) even if it puts a lot more work on me. So with me trying to make it to the gym 3x a week, my oldest involved in the newspaper, yearbook and drama club, my middle child in band, chorus, cheer, girls on the run and soccer, adding baseball again this year to my youngest ones already busy schedule seemed like it would be a piece of cake (insert sarcasm here).
If your kids have ever played sports you know the lists of ‘must haves’ and ‘really really want’ gets pretty long. At the beginning of the season our sports equipment list is as long as my grocery list! To save time and money we have become loyal shoppers at Dicks Sporting Goods.
This year my son went from t-ball to baseball, which can be a big change for a little guy! I also needed to pick up some new work out clothes and running shoes, – So we went to our local DSG and decided to do some shopping.
Now if there is one thing I passed along to my son is my love for shopping – once he gets going, he doesn’t want to stop. We had a list of things we wanted to pick up, and ended up with, well, quite a bit more than what was on the list.
The first step was a new glove – as well as a new bat bag, new bat, batting glove, cleats, and baseball pants!
Fortunately we hit up DSG when they were having a great sale! They are really great at making sure that they have affordable items for everyone during each sports season. I saw a lot of great baseball and softball equipment deals!
He had a ton of fun shopping!
(and a bit of a hard time making up his mind!)
I picked up a pair of New Balance running shoes, and a cute workout top (to be featured later – I had a hard time taking a picture of myself in my outfit!)
I love that I am able to get everything we need at one store – without running around from place to place, such a time saver!
He was ALL decked out in style for his game – and couldn’t be prouder.
