Worst Mother of the Day Award

I get the Worst Mother of the Day Award for not even getting out of my car at Sandis' soccer game today.

It was cold, windy, rainy.

Before the game when the coach asked the girls if they were ready for the game, they said they'd like to forfeit and go home.

The rain waxed and waned over the course of the two hours of game/warm-ups, but the wind and cold remained constant. I just wasn't up for another week of it. Last week I toughed out the whole game (no rain then.) This week, I didn't even try. Partially because Stella wore my winter coat in to the house from the car so I had no coat with me. Partially because I'm a horrible, no-good, very bad mom.

Yeah, I'm ok with it (and no, Sandis didn't care.)

This is your friendly reminder to vote. All you do is click, which takes you to the website where you then do nothing. Or you can do something, but you don't have to do something. It's easy. Thanks :)

    Well I must be super bad because I have done the same thing so many times I don't think I have enough digits to count them. My boys played soccer from ages 4 -over 18 to put a little perspective on it but I did that practically every time the weather was cold and wet.

    She's only been playing for 5 or 6 years now. Just last year she moved to the fields that are north of town where it's windy like Wyoming (because it practically IS Wyoming.) It is so miserable to watch games up there. I actually don't think it was *so* bad to watch from the car, mostly I just feel I was being wimpy for not going out there. After all, she had to be out there, you know?
