I'm A Soccer Mum!

But no, I'm not getting a mini-van. The car I have will do just fine LOL.
We took Offspring #1 to soccer registration yestereday afternoon. He was so excited and just couldn't stand still. He's all signed up for an Under-6's team and training and 'real soccer games' start after the school holidays. During that time we have to buy some special socks, just for soccer, and some chin pads. Chin Pads? Well, I know that they are shin pads but #1 wanted to know why he had to wear them on his chin LOL. I'm not sure I want to know how he thinks soccer is played!

He'll have so much fun. I never played soccer (which really is a shock if you knew about the town I grew up in...everyone plays soccer) but my brother did. It took him the entire season to even approach the ball. The parents on BOTH teams were cheering for him when he finally kicked the ball. VICTORY!!!!! Chin pads might not be a bad idea! ;-)

I love your story, Claire. I can see #1 doing something very similar LOL.

I usually do not write many responses, however I
browsed a few comments on "I'm A Soccer Mum!". I do have
a couple of questions for you if you do
not mind. Could it be simply me or does it look like like a few of these responses look as if they are left by brain dead visitors?

:-P And, if you are posting on other online social sites, I would like
to keep up with anything new you have to post.

Would you post a list of all of your social pages like your Facebook page,
twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
