The way to her heart is fashion.

I've been trying to convince Mara lately to play baseball this Fall.

Me: Mara, do you want to play baseball in a few weeks?
Mara: No, baseball's for boys.
Me: Baseball's not for boys. Mommy used to play baseball.
Mara: Oh....well, I don't know anyone on my team.
Me: That's ok, you'll get to make some new friends.
Mara: But I don't think I'm good at baseball.
Me: You don't know you're good at it or not until you try.
Mara: I don't know....I don't think I want to play.
Me: Ok, but don't forget that if you play you'll get a new shirt, pants, hat, and a baseball glove.
Mara: Really? A new outfit?
Me: Yep.
Mara: Momma, I think I want to play baseball!

I think fashion is her love language!

That is too funny!!
We teased about baseball here because it was "free" through parks and rec. Of course, after I purchased the new outfit I think I was in to the tune of $85.
