Wordful Wednesday-Soccer Mom

Wordful Wednesday 411: Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, except WITH words.  It’s for those of us that just cannot be wordless, no matter how much we try.  Add my Wordful Wednesday badge to your post (right side bar under “WW”) if you really want to make me happy, and then add your post link to the linky below. Easy peasy.

It’s official.  I’m a soccer mom.

This year instead of just taking my boys to and from soccer practices and games and fulfilling the occasional task of field maintenance I’m the team mom.

I’m shaking my head as I write this.  I’m the team mom for my twins team and Garrett’s team and I did it all on my own.

My philosophy is this:  “if no one else volunteers, then I will“.  Well, this year, no one volunteered, and Here. I. Am.

I’m the Team Mom.  For TWO TEAMS.

What is your volunteering philosophy?

    Well, so far I haven’t had to volunteer for any child related activities – yet. But I do volunteer for activities and events I involve myself in (if no one else will): if there’s a possibility that something will get shut down without volunteers, then I raise my hand. 😉

    My philosophy used to be do it, do it all! Raise your hand, volunteer for it all (shortly followed by burn out, too tired, too much, can’t do it all by myself). Now? I’m more like you. If it looks like no one else will offer, I’ll offer, but I have to remember what I’ve already signed up for (as we are plagued with lack of parental involvement here I’ll fast forget all that I’ve said yes to).

    I can relate. I do the same thing, step up when no one else will. then my plate is too full and I start to get stressed and irritated. that’s why I avoid groups and organized activities like the plague, I won’t be able to help myself from volunteering. but I know once my kids start school and start team sports I’m a dead woman.

    I am a soccer mom too! My son LOVES it. Luckily I am not the team mom. That might just do me in!

    Sorry I am late again. Some day I will get back into blogging in a timely manner!
