Travel sports, are they worth it?
My daughter loves softball. I mean LOVES SOFTBALL.
She has been playing since she was 9 and almost instantly fell in love.
She played rec ball for a couple years then was asked about joining a travel softball team. My husband and I discussed it and thought, what the hell...why not?
I promise I won't spend this whole post bashing playing travel ball, there is a lot of good in it. Seeing new places, being competitive, meeting new people, learning to work as a team....all great benefits.
What do I hate? Manipulation. Liars. Gossip. Pretending to be someone's friend.
And that's just the parents. I wish I were joking but totally not. I have one mom in particular that has spent the last 3 weeks talking about another parent on the team. Saying she is upset.....hurt her feelings.....can't handle how much drama she causes.....told me things this parent supposedly said about her daughter..... Fast forward to this past weekend. GUESS WHO SPENT EVERY MOMENT WITH THIS PARENT???
The truth of the matter is, I'm just not catty enough for this BS. I can't "talk shit" on someone for weeks then be their best friend, it's so not cool. Have any of you had experience with this? If so, how have you dealt with the situation?
