Jack: "Mommy, what team will I play for next year. I've already been an Angel and a Cardinal!"
Me: "I don't know Jack, we won't know until next season!"
Jack: "Maybe I'll be a Dodger! Would you cheer for me if I was a Dodger?"
Me: "Of course Jack! We'll cheer for you no matter what team you are on.
Jack: "Mommy, would you cheer for me even if I was a Yankee?"
Me: "Well Jack... I don't know if I could cheer for you if you become a Yankee. I think we'd have to make you move out of the house if you were a Yankee."
Jack: [blank stare - blinking eyes]
Me: "Seriously Jack, you know we don't like the Yankees!"
Jack: [continues to be serious] "You're right Mom. I understand!"
[then we both laugh hysterically]
Me: "Jack, don't worry, you won't be a Yankee because Daddy is your coach and he picks your team. Also there is another coach who loves the Yankees, so the League lets his team be the Yankees, so I'm positive you'll never be a Yankee in Little League!"
Jack: "Oh good - that's a relief!"
