Is being a soccer mom really THAT bad? My mom was a soccer mom, and she totally rocked the mini van (and actually still does.) Today is a normal Saturday morning, except I’m thinking about what type of snack I should buy for my son’s soccer team. I’m the snack mom today, those two words alone are pretty funny snack mom. I am a total soccer mom. Okay I’ve said it, now I just need to accept it! Soccer is in my blood I played since I was 5 as did both of my brothers. My parents run the biggest youth soccer tournament in the nation, so my son playing soccer is just apart of growing up. Why am I having such a hard time accepting the role as soccer mom? My son plays soccer and I am his mom… soccer mom, soccer mom, soccer mom. Maybe if I just say it over and over again it will help. No such luck. I feel like soccer mom’s are a mess, not a stitch of make up, hair with no product, beach bag as a purse, wearing mom jeans, and I am none of these things. I won’t even go to the gym without make up, if I don’t want to see me with no make up on I figure no one else should either. When I think of a soccer mom I still think of a 90’s soccer mom and it is 2011! I think we (soccer mom’s) need to change the meaning of the word! “Did you see Billy’s mom’s new BCBG shoes and Coach bag… wow what a soccer mom!” Okay, so that may not happen but I’m a new soccer mom hoping it does!
