tee ballTee ball started out peacefully…

Everyone sharing.

Everyone taking turns.

Then something went wrong.

Incredibly wrong.

She didn’t get her way.

And if Sister ain’t happy,

Ain’t nobody happy…

Here’s how it went down…


Let me have a turn, NOW, or I’ll take a hostage tee…

Do you ever feel like you need a degree in criminal psychology to negotiate hostage situations with your kids?

I begged Calgon to take me away.

About Virginia

Hi there! My name is Virginia, and I am the author/owner of That Bald Chick. I am a Christian, wife, mother of three, full time homemaker, homeschooler, and ministry volunteer in addition to being a blogger. In my free time *cough* I enjoy reading, writing, taking walks with my family, and listening to music.


  1. I so love her expressions! 🙂

  2. Love it! Those expressions when she has the bat are priceless!

  3. You’re bringing back the memories. Mine are 15 months apart, boy and girl and I remember these days well. 🙂

    They’re now 23 and 21 and are best of friends.

  4. LOL!

    And I think as adults, it’s the same way a lot. A guy will just shrug “it” off and move on…and us women want to beat it to death sometimes!

  5. Hey, if you can’t play no one can – I get it!! LOL
