I’m officially a soccer mom! Aside from a brief experiment six years ago, my kids have been woefully uninterested in playing soccer so far. In fact, until this year they’ve been uninterested in most sports. And in reading. Or anything that isn’t on an iPad. I’m really nailing this parenting thing.
For THREE KIDS!!
Sophie is on a little bit of a different schedule, and she’s only had a couple of practices and one game. It started out kind of rough, because no one had a clue what they were supposed to do and the other team did, but they started getting the idea by the end and there was some good hustle out there.
She’s fast as lightning, so if she gets a little better at keeping control of the ball she could be unstoppable.
Or she could end up spacing out and just running around in Sophieland. It’s always hard to tell with her.
Meanwhile, Isabelle is experiencing life as a soccer orphan. Most games and practices she votes to stay home, but I may force her to come more often if it keeps a book in her hands!
So there you have it! My life long dream of being a soccer mom is finally being realized. And the kids’ dreams of sitting in random fields all over town are coming true.
If you need me between now and October, you know where I’ll be.
