Growing up I looooved soccer and have dreamt of the day my kids would play. Well those dreams came true, my first born started today and I couldn't have been more happy, albeit a little jealous that I wasn't the one suiting up in my shin guards and cleats.
He has talked about it all day and told me when I tucked him in, "I loved playing soccer today, Mom." Those words were music to my heart. Now he is laying in bed telling his little brother all about how he plays soccer now and that when Bear gets older he can get cleats and play too. These are the times that make the hard work of being a mom feel worth it.
