I believe in the simplicity of words, when my son was 3 years old I took him to his first major league baseball game…it was alot to take in and having a passion for the game myself I did not want to force that love of the game onto my son…after 9 full innings of cotton candy, pop and the great experience of the game I was a proud dad as we left the event…as we were living the parking lot I asked my son if he enjoyed the game and he said he loved it…taking this opportunity to possibly instill my love of the game onto him I told him…son, if you like the game and end up working hard you can grow up to be a star…he hesistated and looked abit puzzeled and then he sumed up his thoughts by saying Dad, you be the star I be the moon…my son taught me that day the simplicity of words and that no matter how much as parents we direct our children they go the path they select.
