Alright, so I have boys who play soccer.
And I even have the minivan that goes along with being a soccer mom.
But, apparently, I’m NOT a good soccer mom as defined by the behavior of the soccer moms I have encountered.
1. I wish there was only one practice a week for each of my boys instead of two.
2. I think that an hour and a half of a Skills Clinic followed by another half hour of regular practice is too much for six year-olds.
3. When we’ve had a long day already, I have ZERO problem skipping practice in favor of an early bedtime.
4. I cannot bring myself to scream at a group of five year-olds “Don’t let them take it away from you!” or “Get your head in the game!”
5. I am not competitive about bringing the best after-game snack.
6. When it’s cold or rainy, I hope for a cancellation.
7. I have no clue what the scores have been for my boys’ games.
My boys have fun at soccer and that’s all that matters, right? Not if I’m there in a chair that coordinates with their team colors while screaming my head off and analyzing what the coach should be doing better. Right?
Well, if I’m wrong, I’m still not changing. Maybe I’m only cut out to be the mom of soccer players and not a “soccer mom.”
