She’s so easy to talk to.
She starts talking before your butt even has a chance to hit your seat.
She always has something to say.
And it makes practice go by so much faster with someone to talk to.
But should you talk to her?
For the past two seasons, I really haven’t made friends with the other soccer moms.
Most of that had to do with keeping an eye on my other kids while practice was going on- it was too hard to sit and chat without losing sight of my kids… and considering one of those was just three last year, I need to keep a close eye on them.
But practices this year are at a different field: where I can see the playground easier. Plus my boys are a little older.
So, I can chat with the other moms.
On one of the teams, the parents seem to get along nicely. We’re been together for three seasons now and everyone knows each other.
On another, I just can’t seem to fit in. Probably because I have at least 10 years on all the other moms… more in some cases. And I’m only 35, ya’ll.
But on the third… there was that mom.
Who seemed so easy to talk to.
But now I’m noticing that everything out of her mouth is a criticism.
And while she’s easy to talk to…
Is that really what I want to be talking about?
Do I want to be a part of drama?
To be negative about everything? The coach, the team, the practices, anything and everything and everyone who could possibly be gossiped about?
And um, yeah… I realize glass houses and stones and all that to even be blogging about it.
