Enough Already!



And so begins the season of craziness for Spring sports.  I must’ve been delusional when I signed up my son for both soccer AND t-ball when my daughter is also playing soccer, as well.  That means three practices and three games every single week for the next couple of months.  What the hell was I thinking?  I fully realize that this is just a glimpse into the future with kids and all their activities, but I am not one of those moms who purposely signs up her kids for fifty thousand things just to keep up with the Jones’. Call me selfish, but let’s be honest — it’s a pain in the ass to get five year olds in and out of the car constantly.  They do not understand the concept of being in a hurry for ANYTHING.  And throw in the fact that we also have to remember cleats, shin guards, water bottles, mitts, balls, and a snack. I’m ready for a nap just thinking about it.  Between school, games and practices, I’m wondering if they’re gonna be able to pencil in any time to play at all.  They are way too little to be telling playtime to take a raincheck. I am desperately trying to talk my son into dropping one of the sports to make everyone’s life easier.  So far, he seems intent on both. I can be pretty persuasive, though, so I need to try a different tactic, or else I’m gonna be even crankier come Friday than I already am.
