Thursday was such a gorgeous day I decided to do a yard project I've been wanting to do since we moved in. It involves the strip of property that divides my driveway from my neighbor's driveway. I had the kids outside with me. DD was digging in the dirt I was working with and the baby was in his carseat next to the car. A couple of neighbor boys were next door playing baseball. There were just 2 of them, so it was mostly batting practice.
Next thing I knew it, I heard a baseball THUNK right on the roof of my car. I looked over at the boys who were both looking towards me. One of them opened his mouth and I listened for the expected apology. Instead he looked at his friend and said, "Not again."
I wonder how many times my car's been an unwilling participant in their baseball shenanigans. I told them they better start batting in a different direction (they weren't facing the car in the first place) but I don't know if that will help much. Oh, and don't tell my husband this story. He already doesn't like the neighbor kids (they sled on our yard, skateboard on our driveway, and ride bikes across our grass) and this would be the last straw. What do you do about neighbor kids?
