Did I mention the cuteness yet?  

 

 

 

I know this is supposed to be a wind-up and I am supposed to be a nervous wreck…

 

 

 


My son is on the mound and the game is hanging in the balance…

 

 

 

If he can just strike that batter out, our team will keep their small lead and we will win the game…
 

 

 

 

 

But then my son’s face looks like this…

 

 

 

 

And if he disagrees with the umpire’s call he does this…

 

 

 


And sometimes he does this…

 

 

 

 

 

And this…

 

 

 

 

 

Can I help it if all I see is my little boy throwing a ball just like he used to throw things at his brothers when he was little?

 

 

 
And then his brother does this cute little shake thing when he is up to bat…

 

And I am dying people!

DYING!!! 

DYING FROM ANOTHER ATTACK OF ACUTE CUTENESS!

Somehow I don’t think I am taking this baseball thing nearly seriously enough.

School’s out!

 

 

 

 

 


After a day of relay races at the park…

 

 

 

 

 

 


School swimming parties and eighth grade graduation for which I did not have my camera because I am an idiot…

We are already fully submerged in the rites of summer.

 

 

 

 

 


For my family that means baseball, baseball, more baseball, with a side of baseball and please could you please give me some extra baseball with that?

 

 

 

 


Every other year, my two middle sons play on the same team.

 

 

 

 

 


Instead of trying to be at four different games, in four different towns, all on the same night… this year I only have to be at three different games, in three different towns, on the same night.

 

 

 

 

 


It’s a huge relief!

 

 

 

 

 

 


I know that baseball is supposed to be a very competitive sport and my boys are very serious about the game…

 

 

 

 

 


But I gotta tell ya, the cuteness of these two boys on the same team this year is literally killing me.

I don’t know if I will survive to the end of the season.

 

 

 

 

 


And if I keep talking about the cuteness all season long, my sons might actually prefer that I don’t survive.


Is it just me???

 

 

 

 


Am I seeing things???

 

 

 

 

Or is it possible that there are some very striking similarities…

 

 

 

 

Between the handsome and rubbery face of Jim Halpert from The Office…

 


 

 

And claymation star of stage and screen, Gromit?

 

 

 

 

 


Jim…

 

 

 


Gromit

 

 

 


Jim…

 

 

 

 

 


Gromit…

 

 

 

 


Jim…

 

 

 

 

 

 


Gromit…

 

 

 

 

 

 


Dwight as Jim…

No.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Gromit as Jim…?
Quite possibly yes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Can you see it?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


They could be brothers!

 

 

 

 

 

Maybe they should switch places in an episode!

 

 

 

 

 

Jim could play Gromit and Gromit could play Jim!

And I could play Pam when Jim is playing Jim again!

 

 

 

 


Cracking toast Jim!  

I mean Gromit!

I MEAN WHICHEVER ONE YOU ARE!
