I love soccer.
I played competitively throughout my childhood and adolescents.
I coached little kid teams off and on throughout high school and as an adult.
I played recreationally on an adult team for years.
So, my next logical step is clearly to be a soccer mom – like a literal one, not just a child taxi service as is described by wikipedia. I plan to live up to many of the soccer mom stereotypes – except the minivan, I refuse to get a minivan.
I believe team sports and activities are important for healthy early childhood development, so until my child is old enough to refuse to play*, I plan to enroll then in soccer. And, I also plan to be the best darn soccer mom ever!
I plan to coach their team.
I am going to be at every single soccer practice and game.
I am going to be there for ever single goal and every single scrapped knee.
I am going to operate a private taxi service to make sure they get tho the field on time.
I am going to bring orange slices for the kids to enjoy at half time.
I am going to kick a ball with our child whenever they want to practice in the back yard.
I am going to take way to many photos of the kids running around.
I am going to cheer louder then every other parent.
Clearly, I am so going to embarrass our child. And I am going to love every moment of it!
* If one day our child decides soccer is not for them, and instead chooses another sport or activity, I will be just as dedicated. But, I really do hope they love soccer and stick with it.
