It was excruciatingly hot!
"MOM I NEEEEEDDD AN ICE PACK FOR MY NECK!!! IT SO GOING TO BE SOOOOOO HOT OUT THERE!!!"
Frantically I began searching for the ice packs. Then it hit me. Caroline busted both ice packs at softball camp and got in trouble for it.
What am I going to do?
All the other kids will have ice packs, water, Frogg Togg cooling towels, etc.
My kid is going to have nothing.
We don't have time to run to Walmart.... wait!
I got it!!
"Here Big! Throw this in your bat bag. It will have to work for tonight."
"But MOM! That is your wine bag!"
"It has multiple uses, Big. Multiple uses."
With a slap on the butt and a "Go get 'em champ!" I sent her on her way.
When she came off of the field, hot and sweating, we tucked the handles in the bag and noone ever knew.
It was our little secret.
