Officially a Soccer Mom

Mini Van- check

2.3 kids (though what is .3 of a kid)-- so 3 kids-- check

What feels like living in my van most of the day--check

Two kids enrolled in soccer with practice on different days-- check

Yep, I have officially become a soccer mom.

Lucas practices Tuesday/Thursdays, Alex on Wednesday/ Fridays-- both during the 5-6:00 hour-- both practices about 15 minutes away, making just dropping off and picking up impossible.

Yep.

It's true I am a soccer mom.

I will be enjoying the day off with my kids today (yes some of you are just starting school but we have been in almost a month and have our first day off) and I will be writing my Ten Things to Smile About this List for tomorrow!!


Yes, it is time again to look back and find ten things that made you smile in August.  The linky will be open for 1 1/2 weeks, so if your list is not ready for tomorrow there will be lots of time to link up.

  4. Sounds like another day here.... I am so thankful that my oldest can drive now! That takes a HUGE load off of me!

    I ditched the mini van a while ago. Hated it.

  7. I haven't figured out why they put practices on Friday's. Kids like to have sleep overs.. Parents like to have date nights.. See, this is probably why I'm not a full blown parent yet... LOL :)

  12. You know what this reminds me of? That commercial on TV with the mom handing out drinks to all the kids out of the back of her minivan after soccer practice. And they've got that 'Stacey's mom has got it goin' on...' song playing in the background! :o) That's YOU!!!

  14. Emmy, I've felt like a soccer mom for the last 4 years or so... and the kids are only in soccer during the summer, lol! You'll make it and probably the best at figure out what you can do in a minivan 1 1/2 hours every day :)

  19. I'd suggest whispering to Ryder how horrible soccer is now so he isn't tempted to try it too.
