As of 9:30 this morning, I am officially a soccer mom.
Brandi has always wanted to play soccer but time, money, other stuff has always prevented me from being able to sign her up. This year I saved the money and cleared time and this morning I registered her for soccer.
Registration opened this morning at 9 a.m. I would be at work and she would be at school. I told her we would go after school. She has piano lessons after school. I leave for class before she gets home from lessons. Last night she was worried that we would not make it to registration before we have to go to our other things. She was also adamant that we register the first day possible so she would be sure to get in. She came to me with a plan. She would put her piano books in my car, I would pick her up from school today and go straight to the rec. center and register her. Then if we had to wait in line and it was getting late, then I could drop her off at piano lessons and go to class.
This morning during a lull at work, I logged onto the city rec. center site and registered Brandi for the first two sessions of soccer. She is going to be so happy when she gets home. And I get to learn all about soccer.
But I am not buying a mini van.
