The New Season

Kaleb's been playing baseball for two weeks now. Because I didn't enjoy soccer, I was relieved to discover that his passion for baseball made this particular sports season much more enjoyable. And a little sad that he's grown up so much. This week's article is called "A New Season."

"I worried when I didn’t enjoy soccer. This was my first year as soccer mom and I was not meeting the cut. We dragged our feet to practice and collectively dreaded game day. What is wrong with me, I kept thinking. What kind of sick, twisted mother doesn’t enjoy watching her children play organized sports? Ahem. That would be me."

What a great article! You are a fantastic writer.

I very much prefer baseball to soccer, too! :)

I'm not a sports mom. I try. I really do but I'd rather get a root canal than sit in the heat and watch my little guy play baseball. I feel terrible about it.

I feel your pain, and that's how I was about soccer. Oh, how I dreaded those games. I'm just glad that I seem to be more tolerant of baseball, especially since it looks like it just might stick (I'm guessing I have quite a few more baseball seasons ahead of me...)
