Soccer Mom

(photos from 2007, unedited and blurry)
So my darling little son told me that he did not want to go back to soccer this year. After the fights we had last year I wasnt about to argue. Anyway, then he told his father that he did indeed want to go. Then told me that he didnt but he would go and he would be happy about it. HA! We will see about that! lol So in anticipation of the season starting I packed up a bag for us yesterday. When I picked him up at school we crossed the street to the field. The school field was occupied. Actually, the other field was as well but there were only two high school boys training. I felt a little out of place, let me tell you, I had two young shirtless boys playing soccer on one side of the field, and two young shirtless boys on the other side of me playing basketball. There I was with my chubby bum running around in the grass and mud yelling 'the side of your foot, the side of your foot, no hands, no hands, dive for it, dive for it' over and over again. The really fun part was when I slipped on the wet grass and went flying into the mud. Connor LAUGHED AND LAUGHED AND LAUGHED at me. Ashamed to say that he gets that from his mother. ;)

We were there for about an hour and a half with a five minute break for snacks and water. It was quite grueling on me. I was sweating, I was breathing heavy, I felt like I was going to fall over but I was having lots of fun with my son. It was a great experience for both of us. I promised him that we would do it again in a few days. He wanted to know if I could play with him and the other kids today. Ummm nope. Dont think they would like it if Mommy was out on the field with the rest of the 5 & 6 yr olds. What a sight I would be! I think that we will go back again once or twice a week. He will be playing twice a week with the team so I dont want to over work him. Not that the kid EVER runs out of energy. His teacher told me how energetic he was at school yesterday. We played soccer for an hour and a half, he ran home from the field and I was still after him to get to sleep at 8pm! People say I could make some money if I could bottle it up but I say I would be a BILLIONAIRE! ;) Hope everyone has a great Tuesday!

Where's the picture of the muddy chubby bum? HAHAHAHA Kidding.

Great post. You never cease to entertain. And I feel like our lives are so parallel...your Connor...same b-day as my Carter just a year apart. Soccer Moms...digiscrappers. CANADIANS! Love it!

Awwww, he's so cute!! I love that he tells you what a burden it is, but tells his dad he WANTS to. They're so cute and yes, when you bottle that energy, I'll take a case!
