Shin guards & a song for your weekend
Friday, April 11, 2014
I am quite literally a soccer Mom now. D-man had his first practice this week and I was loving it just as much as him. But I know nothing about soccer. I went to three stores to find shin guards and soccer socks that were small enough for his tiny little leg and foot. No luck. Finally a neighbor gave me some of her kids soccer gear that they had outgrown and they actually fit. Whew! I suppose this is just a first glimpse of the years ahead that I will spend chasing down and washing the kiddos' sports gear.
And I must note that his first practice involved a drill where the kids kicked the ball through the parents legs. This is when I wished I had my own shin guards.
Watching 4-year-olds play soccer is both hilarious and sweet.
Here's a beautiful song for your weekend. Loving Sam Smith lately...
