All for the love of the game....translation all for the love of my child.

I am not sure if everyone is aware, but Nebraska is a windy place. I MEAN WINDY!!!! Yesterday we started out in the mid 70's in about 2 hours it dropped to about 50. Brrrrr! All because of the wind. The wind howled and moaned, the trees danced and bobbed, my windows shook. It was windy all day long. I was late to work today so I threw on a trusty knit dress and cardigan and out the door I went with no tights or socks on. The no tights thing was fine at work, because it is usually kinda warm in my office. I was not planning ahead very well however, and I forgot about my youngest soccer game. Normally I would have time to go home and change, but today I stayed late to make up my time, and to get some extra work done.

So off I trotted to the soccer game with only a knit dress, and light cardigan. Can we say brrrrr chilly willy wing wong??? I froze my arse off. My lovely Jaded J brought me socks, and luckily we had a blanket in the car. By the end of her game my hands were frozen, my legs were icicles, and my nose was on constant drip mode. But, it was all worth it to watch her run and shout and block and kick. She is free out on the field. The child was born to run.

Sports and I have a bad relationship as my eye hand coordination is lacking, and I generally sucked at everything I tried. But my darling Sara, she was born with Jaded J's grace and abilities. I am surprised at how much I enjoy rooting her on at the games. I really hope that next game is bit warmer though!

Wa wa wa, wanker. I thought Nebraska girls were born in a fridge and raised on icees.

OK, it was damned cold.

The girl CAN run...he said gracefully.

How this post brings back memories of me freezing my own "arse" off during football games! I had to smile as I read it! But seriously, as mothers what wouldn't we do for our children. That J is fantastic!

Please don't make his head bigger than it is!

I am glad that I am not the only one.
