have you ever seen anything cuter that a pair of shin guards, that come in an extra-extra-small?
cause i haven’t!!
i rarely say “i can’t wait for my kids to, ( blah blah blah)”. i usually relish the day that is present. but, there were two things that i couldn’t wait for with both my babies. i couldn’t wait for nathan (and now i can’t wait for lucy) to tell me those three words of endearment, that shake the very ground your standing on when you hear them. “I LOVE YOU, MOMMY!” it was september 3, 2010.
the second thing i couldn’t wait for, was being a “soccer mom”. not because i wanted a soccer ball sticker on the rear window of my mini-van (i don’t even have a mini-van), or even for the catchy title that became famous in the soccer world as “soccer mom”. i just couldn’t wait. and, i really don’t know why.
|nathan’s first “huddle-up”!!|
josh and i have been practicing drills, and flitting around in the backyard, trying to get nathan familiar with the game since his first practice was creeping up on us. i am amazed, at 4 years-old, that he already focuses on his footwork.
he’s our little striker!
placing all of my mommy-pride aside, i think that nathan has the best control on the team. josh laughed at me when he heard me say that. he said, “i love you babe, you are so blind…but, it is so cute and keep it up.” i really do think that he has killer foot control. blind or not, that kid is a natural!!
now if we could just get him to control his hands, he will have this soccer thing figured out.
sister-girl was running through that gymnasium like she was the next mia hamm…if only we would have let her jump the bumpers to get in the game.
i have daydreamed about today, since his little eyes couldn’t even focus clearly. soccer practice was so cool, dude.
would you believe me, if i said that i couldn’t have been more proud of this little soccer boy?
pause button please!
