Fall is the time to stock up on Blow-Pops!
Volleyball for Emily and soccer, baseball or flag football for Jonathan and Zac.
For me....it is the time to stock up on Blow-Pops!
The colors are red, pink, purple and green...not exactly fall colors!
Let me explain. I am very competitive and a bit obnoxious,
I know you can't believe it, but it's true.
I have discovered that during big football games or very crowded volleyball tournaments, it's not such a problem, but with only a few people on the sidelines or in the stands, I can really stick out like a crazed fan or over zealous soccer mom.
As I was searching for this movie clip to illustrate my point, I came across many Youtube videos where unsuspecting soccer moms were video taped by total strangers...surely because they were much more entertaining than the game itself. Yikes!
Out of respect for other moms like me, I chose not to post any of them here!
Luckily I did not come across a video of myself. Whew....and lesson learned!
A few seasons ago, I happened to grab a Blow-Pop at the concession stand during a baseball game. Afterwards, I realized that during that game, I had been less vocal and more settled. I attributed it to the fact that the blow-pop kept my mouth busy, therefore less loud, obnoxious and over zealous. Do you see what I mean?
Tuesday afternoon, while Emily's team played in the semi-finals of the Conference championship, I had an entire bag of suckers....I even had to share some with the other Mom's. It works for them too!
We do love our fall sports! And our Blow-Pops!
Enjoy your day!
I'm linking up to Alphabe-Thursday! Today's assignment was to write about the colors of fall. Join us at Jenny Matlock's blog for more fall fun!
