Transformation complete

First came the kids, and with them, the ability to sing Wiggles songs and recite Good Night Moon verbatim. Then came the minivan. And today, my friends... I have officially transformed into a soccer mom.

Today was BS's first soccer practice, and he did great! DH and I had a blast watching him run around and dribble the ball with a dexterity that surprised us both.


He was glad to see several of his friends from school there, especially his buddy C.


Even Jim got in on the action at one point!


The group shot cracks me up - my little ham is the only one looking straight at the camera, saying "cheese!" He's right in the middle of things, as always. He is completely gleeful in this picture, which does my heart good.


LS was rivetted the entire time, too! He loved watching all of the action, and it won't be long before we'll be trying to keep him from joining in on the fun, I'm sure!

On another note, you can tell BS's my kid because he was one of the only kids who got all red and sweaty while running around the field. With my pale skin, I was always the reddest kid in gym class, and what can I say? I'm a sweater. Not one of my more feminine assets, to be sure.

In his defense, it is disgustingly humid today. DH even had to break out one of the air conditioners, which had already been put away for the Fall. Let's hope we get this rain they're predicting so the humidity will break soon!

Anyway... being a soccer mom is pretty cool so far. Although, as Dr. Evil once said, "I'm still cool. I'm still hip. Ducka-ducka-ducka-ducka...ayyy-up!" My inner party girl still lives on, I promise.

SO cool, Bev! He looks great. And we have the red sweaty face in common. Zoe gets it, too. ;)

For your listening pleasure, I give you... Everclear!

You know I used to be a bad girl
I got busy in the bathroom at my highscool prom
Yeah, I used to be a dancer at the local strip club
But now I know my right wing from my wrong

Yeah, yeah, I really used to be a bad girl
I had a threesome with my sister and her boyfriend, Tom
I know I used to be a real wild child
But now I am a volvo driving soccer mom

Na na na na na na
Volvo driving soccer mom
Na na na na na na

Really used to be a bad girl
I got busted for posession of my wizard shaped bong
I used to love to do the things they tell me not to do
But now I'm different, now I sing a new song

I really used to be a bad girl
I got gang bang in the bathroom at my highschool prom
Yes, I used to be a real wild child
But now I am a volvo driving soccer mom

Chorus: Na na na na na
Volvo driving soccer mom
Na na na na na
Volvo driving soccer mom
Volvo driving soccer mom
Volvo driving soccer mom

Where do all the porn star go?
When the lights go down?
I wonder where all the porn stars go
'Cause when you need one they are never around

I think they moved out to the suburbs
And now they're blonde, bland, middleclassed, republican wives
They all have blonde, bland, middleclassed, republican children
Blonde, bland, middleclassed, republican lives

Where do all the porn stars go?
When the lights go down?
I think I know where all the porn stars go
They've now become volvo driving soccer moms

Na na na na na na
Volvo driving soccer moms
Na na na na na na
Volvo driving soccer moms
