Soccer season is here, and I’m even snack mom this morning! LUCKY ME!!!! Luckily, I am going to get a sweet deal on grapes and granola bars in a few minutes at Safeway.
It’s so funny to commiserate with other moms about soccer season. I have only one little soccer player and I am on the verge of 2 next year (let’s face it, Spencer would love to play this year — but I just can’t do it). The practices, the games. The heat.
I won’t lie. I often compare how great taking theater at school would be compared to soccer with Conner. Of course, the advantage of theater is that I don’t have to take him anywhere — he walks over to the cafeteria at the end of school (who-hoo!). However, as I look around, you rarely see a fat kid playing soccer. I’m not saying they’re all over in theater, but I do know that the endless exertions of energy can only be a good thing for him.
Except that our game is in the afternoon today… and it’s gonna be hot. REALLY hot. Well, hot for our area (the rest of you can feel free to roll your eyes at my 90 degrees). So, I’m gonna go find my pom poms and get ready to cheer, cheer, CHEER!
