Hot Mess Plays Dodgeball

To say I’m athletic is to say that the John Legend and Chrissy Teigen holiday special was magical. Both are a lie and it’s ok to accept it. This is the second dodgeball game I’ve attended. First with my oldest and now my youngest (9-years-old) had his this evening. It’s held in their gym and… Continue reading Hot Mess Plays Dodgeball

Do you ever go through a holiday and someone completely takes you by surprise and gives you the most amazing gift on Earth? That was my Mother’s Day Weekend. Sure, I had to be up on Mother’s day at the ass crack of dawn for a soccer game, but the day before gave us what… Continue reading Parents Behaving Badly Part 3

Weekend Round Up

I feel as if I’ve lived 4 days all in this Sunday. We had a soccer tournament in Cincinnati this weekend and like clock work, our Sunday game began at 7 f’ing 30! 7:30! On a Sunday!! Of course I did the responsible thing and showered around 7:30 pm the night before and in bed… Continue reading Weekend Round Up

10 Reasons I Should Never Fill Out Brackets

When did March Madness become something of an American holiday? When I tell people not only do I not want to fill out a bracket but I won’t be watching basketball, they respond as if I just said I won’t be putting a Christmas tree up this year. I don’t like sports. We’ve been over… Continue reading 10 Reasons I Should Never Fill Out Brackets

You Think You’re Ready For the Title?

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?

Hot Mess Doesn’t Do Basketball

So when my work emails us and says there are free suite tickets for the OSU basketball game, I jump at it. Not because I love sports, I think many of you know my feelings about sports. It’s for my sons. It just so happens that no other co-workers could make the game today so… Continue reading Hot Mess Doesn’t Do Basketball

A How To Guide On Playing Football

As I completely miss the soccer ball my 8-year-old kicks to me, I’m reminded of how little to no experience I have with any sport what so ever. Every skill these boys got is from my soccer extraordinaire husband. With the exception of soccer (which I do find tedious if it’s not the Crew or… Continue reading A How To Guide On Playing Football

He’s Not Old, Damn It!

My early morning conversations with my 12-year-old seem to becoming more and more ridiculous as the school year marches on. I wouldn’t trade them for the world. We have approximately 20 minutes between the time I wake up and the time I drive him to the bus stop. In a hung-over haze, I quickly attempt… Continue reading He’s Not Old, Damn It!

This Isn’t A Locker Room!

Saturday kicked off the beginning of soccer season with what is known as a friendly game at 9 a.m. for my 8-year-old son, while my husband was taking my 12-year-old to his game. To be honest, there isn’t such a thing as a soccer season. Perhaps a soccer year? It’s like a unicorn or big… Continue reading This Isn’t A Locker Room!
