Being a mom? Tough work!!! In the past few days, I have played so much soccer that I think I could become the next big star! And maybe, just maybe, my biggest fan will be my son. But, before I get that celebrity status, I am having to go through all the hazing rituals. A huge bruise on my shin? Check. A twisted ankle from trying to stop a ball but landing on it instead? Check. A sprained pinkie from stopping a whizzing ball as goalie? Check! A major headache from trying to head the ball from reaching the goal? Check!
I'm really nearly there...what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. And I think I am the toughest, strongest mama alive!!! And even better than the strength, is this little voice that giggled out "Mama, you can play soccer better than ALL the other mama's!!! as he kicked yet another ball my way which I stopped with a half kick, half diving motion which ricocheted off my hands. Yep, I'm getting there. Watch for me in upcoming sports articles...if you don't find me in the obits first!
