Today was the last day for the season that I get to play soccer mum, well except for presentation day next weekend (now that is sure to be a world of fun). Now I know that the girl-child loves playing soccer but all I can think is ‘Yippee, I get a Sunday back!’ Should I be disappointed that I don’t have to get up at some ungodly hour of a Sunday morning and traipse to some suburb in the middle of nowhere, on the other side of the city to stand around in the cold and cheer? Hell no!
That said, it has been a giggle worth season. Whilst she may not be the next Matilda, she does have fun. This is her unorthodox way to warm up before the game.
The when she is on the field it is often more like watching a dance performance than a game of soccer!
Occasionally she does look like she is playing sport (just not actually watching the ball!)
I really am proud of girl-child for taking on a new sport, one she knew nothing about, and I do cheer loudly at the games I go to. I also take bazillions of photos for the team it just happens that the only photos that don’t have the faces of all the other players are the ones that show her less-soccer-like skills!
