I'm a Soccer Mom!

Cole is in a Soccer League. The idea of it cracks me up. He can barely say the word soccer, yet he is learning to play! Alex played soccer as a kid and loved it, so we asked Cole if he wanted to play and here we are. I love the idea of them out there early Saturday mornings running drills, getting fresh air and exercise, and spending time together. It just makes my heart swell. At this age, they don't actually play games or compete, it's just about learning how to handle and control the ball.

Today is picture day, so he is all dressed up in his jersey, shin guards and cleats. So cute! Alex called me from the field to get the information Mama keeps stored in her head. How tall is he? How much does he weigh? What is his name? No, not the last one. He better know our child's name! But that got me thinking. Cole is a 32. He is 3 years 2 months old. He weighs 32 pounds and he is 3 feet 2 inches high. I just love when numbers come together like that. I know, I'm a dork. Oh! One more, his jersey number is 6! 3x2=6. Ok. Now I am certifiable. Maybe I shouldn't have been so obsessed with numbers as a kid.

On another note, Katie and Sean are holding yelling conversations! I've tried to catch it on video but as soon as I bring the camera out, they forget what they were doing. One of them will yell, "Maaa!" and the other will return it, "Maaa!" and they keep doing it back and forth cracking themselves up until I get the camera out. It's the kiss of death I tell you. I've thought about just having a camera set up at all times, but I know nothing cute will ever happen again.


  1. We put our son in soccer at 3 too. They are adorable to watch at that age! I hope he's enjoying it.

    Oh, and you're not the only one obsessed with numbers, I do the same exact thing!

  2. How funny, every time I pull out the camera or camcorder, my little one just gets a blank stare, even if she was being adorable seconds before!
