*This post is 2 weeks behind! *
This weekend marked my Sunshine girls first soccer game. Mind you she’s never played soccer before in her life. That would explain the photos below. Before her game I asked her if I could take some pictures of her in her uniform. I swear to God, she posed herself on the steps of our home (where all of our most important pics are taken).
Surely you can understand how nervous I was for Sunny. I mean, she POSED for photos with a soccer ball!!! Athlete’s don’t do that right? And P.S. I wasn’t the only one who was worried. The Uncles met us at the field, equipped with gummy worms to bribe her into playing- should she need to be bribed. You’ll note we are the same three who are Team Beauty Pageants- so this was very new to us.
SIDE NOTE: For those of you wondering- Saint’s favorite word is stil MAMAAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMAMA….Mama. It’s insane how perfect this child is- he gets me. He REALLY gets me
But she was awesome. Like for realz. She dribbled the ball & played her little heart out. She studied Coach Mike (that’s her coach) , sat with her best friends, and didn’t CRY!!!!
I underestimated my child. I did not throw her under the bus i.e. I didn’t admit my fears openly to anyone who would listen. Nope I did what I always strive to do, I let her, be her. She was amazing. She was fast and cute and happy. She was not the goalie- although that has to be the best position to play right? I was proud of my girl in all her bright neon pink. She was a tiny athlete, dressed in hot pink, with two uncles who offered to bedazzle GRACIE on the tush of her pink soccer shorts.
Have we ever talked about Sunny’s best friends- The Twins? They are the most adorable, most well behaved, stunning little girls on this Earth. They get it from their Mama. Thank goodness for these little girls and their family- Sunny and I have the same taste in friends.
They left it all on the field. (Isn’t that what sports people say?)
So we did it like we do everything in this household; we did it our way.
***Our way is NOT to be confused with Matt’s way. Matt’s way requires black soccer shorts and one low pony tail. #aintnobodygotnotimefodat
