Ben, excitedly, after doing something good in his baseball game:
"Did you see, Dad?? I did what you told me!!"
In the often thankless, futile, exhausting world of parenting, that's not a bad thing to hear.
What's a little sweeter is that the advice was remembered from another day. And it was that as a catcher (often his position), if his pitcher is having a rough time, he can ask the ump for time out, go to the mound and say some encouraging things to calm down/pick up his teammate.
