This is what my husband jokingly says to our 12, almost 13-year-old. “You think you’re ready for the title?” So then they wrestle until P taps out and moves on. Later, P wrestles the 9-year-old C, until C taps out and then both move on. Aside from envisioning the worst possible scenario such as someone’s… Continue reading You Think You’re Ready For the Title?
This post is exactly what the title says, a rage post. Its 9:20 in the morning and this is what I’m looking at, 40 minutes before my son’s soccer game starts. It all started when my husband and I disagreed this morning about if it’s okay to leave a nine-year-old home alone. He thinks it’s… Continue reading Rage Post- You Don’t Watch My Soccer Practices
We are home after a grueling 4.5 hour drive from outside of Detroit to Columbus. Normally it should have taken 3.5 hours but thanks to Mother Nature, I can now put this trip in the top 5 worst driving experiences. We were there for 2 soccer games. Yes we had to drive a combined total… Continue reading Well Played Mother Nature….Well Played
Last Sunday I blogged about evening #2 with the new soccer parents of my 12-year-olds team. We did the responsible thing and not only left the children at the hotel but headed to the casino to lose probably a combined total of $2,000. Super responsible. So last Friday night, my husband and I sat in… Continue reading European Man Sack
As I look around my house, I’m reminded of episodes of Hoarders. A tumbleweed drifts by, aka Chichi’s fur. Additional reasons my house looks like a hoarders’ paradise? A smelly shin guard and water bottle sit on the kitchen table we eat food off of. A pot my mother-in-law cooked us a meal in 2… Continue reading Failing at House Cleaning and Halloween
Greetings from Cincinnati! We are here for 2 days for a soccer tournament and though I was concerned there would be little to no shenanigans, I was pleasantly pleased with last night’s events. Casino Night “Are we going to the casino or what?” One dad demanded over pizza in the sitting area of the hotel… Continue reading Soccer Parents And the Casino

Where would we be… Continue reading It’s the Freakin’ Weekend!
Just when I thought I was blessed for getting 1 video of parents behaving badly on Saturday, along comes a second little nugget today. For those of you that don’t know, I’m a reluctant soccer mom. I party hard with my girls but you’ll never see me creating obnoxious, Pinterest, soccer crafts or driving a mini… Continue reading Parents Behaving Badly
Over the weekend we went to a soccer tournament and I had the pleasure of hanging out with these lovely ladies. Unfortunately the 3rd lovely lady wasn’t there yet but probably barreling down the highway at 95 mph. scared shitless as her husband drove. In this video I had made a copy of a co-worker’s… Continue reading Hot Mess Discusses Drugs
I was going to do a journal entry each day for this past weekend where we attended an out-of-town soccer tournament in Dayton, Ohio but I decided to write by topic. Here is what I wrote Saturday morning. For anyone new reading my blog, I have an 8-year-old and 12-year-old in soccer and both are… Continue reading Travel Soccer- Saturday Night Dinner
