Yesterday morning I was watching all the hubbub about the 100th Anniversary of Wrigley Field and I got a thought in my head. I wonder if someone has an extra ticket to the Cubs game? The ticket could be located anywhere. I just wanted to take my daughter to the park for a few innings, so she could be part of history.
My daughter is 16 months old. I knew she wouldn't last the whole game and I figured it would be a waste to pay for a ticket. So I went on to Craigslist asking for help, and around 10:30am, I got a response. A very nice person, said they could email me the ticket and told me how to print it out. How sweet!
I scrambled to pack the diaper bag and our nanny helped me get her clothes ready. I put my gal into the stroller and we headed for the stadium.
The ticket worked great, I checked the stroller, and we cruised to the upper deck. For two brutally cold innings, Abby got to see the most boring baseball a fan could watch.
No bother, she was busy pointing at flags and birds, and cooing in amazement. It was darling. I loved holding her in my lap, and watching her wondrous gaze at the beauty of Wrigley Field. No matter what team you root for, it truly is a beautiful field.
'Bout the same time that I couldn't feel my right hand, I did start to feel a warm puddle on my right leg. I decided it was time to go. Abby would need a change, and I might as well.
It was a great day. Thanks to the wonderful person who gave us the opportunity to go together, and thanks to Chicago for keeping this landmark intact.
