View Full Version : Proud parent moment

Steven played his first proper fooball match this morning and the team won 4-1. :thumbsup:

Steven played in defence and was.........well mostly in the team for comedy value. :rotfl: He doesn't really know what to do yet so the ball mainly happens to accidentally bounce off his foot rather than he kicks or passes it.:laugh:

But...I have turned into a football mum (except not the smoking and swearing bit). At one point I was jumping up and down so much it had to be pointed out to me that I was garrotting my dog. :sorry:

11-10-2009, 02:47 PM
LOL!! well done Steven! :thumbsup:

11-10-2009, 02:52 PM
:lol: THAT'S the way to be Mum!!!! No matter that it's not rugby (yet :D ) it's your boy and you'll support him, eh? :D

Good job Steven! Nice win!

11-10-2009, 03:42 PM
Way to go! :yes:

11-10-2009, 04:36 PM
yay!! :D Go Steven!

11-10-2009, 04:40 PM
Yay well done Steven and your team!

Your next step in football mumdom is when they get injured (not badly hopefully!) and you find yourself prancing like a fairy across the field to comfort your 'baby'! :laugh: Don't know whos more embarrassed you or them! :laugh:

When are you buying the overly large X5 that you can't parallel park? LOL

11-10-2009, 05:02 PM
Next person to hint at a football stereotype gets a :slap:

11-10-2009, 05:30 PM
Trust me. Whatever Dawn chooses to drive, she'll be able to parallel park. This is DAWN you are speaking of after all! :D :D :yes: :D

11-10-2009, 05:43 PM
You are getting there Dawn. Soon you will be a total convert.

Was it proper kids football ie a melée of 20 kids all charging around after the ball like a loony tunes fight whilst the 2 keepers stand alone at each end :)

nah she needs a dodge caravan with a soccer mom sticker on it LOL

Well it's 6 a-side so 12 kids in a melee around the ball. But yes you've got the idea. Except Steven who took the concept of "defender" so seriously he spent most of the game in his own penalty area spinning in circles while his team were up the other end scoring. :laugh:

11-10-2009, 06:21 PM
Yes that was me. Left wing all by myself :lol: do they still have the magic sponge? You know the sponge in the ice cold water to be applied to any injury?

11-10-2009, 06:24 PM
No sponge. The kid that was flattened by the thumping tackle was hauled to his feet and told to go off for a rest. He came back on in the second half and got the ball full in the face. No sponge again. :evil:

11-10-2009, 06:31 PM
I remember one game as a kid where the magic sponge bucket had to have a thin film of ice broken on it before it was applied to a stud wound :lol:

11-10-2009, 06:43 PM
Gross story alert.

I was playing in a rugby match and got a whack in the face and got a nose bleed. I had to leave the pitch as it was a blood injury and used the magic sponge and bucket of water to sort it out. At half time there wasn't enough water bottles for one each so some of our team used the magic sponge to get a drink. :eek:

To this day they do not know. :unsure:

When it's your turn to wash the team kit. Make sure that the weather has been good. Nothing worse than 6 muddy kits.

13-10-2009, 03:45 PM
Oh I'm a soccer mom! Have been since my little girl, now 11, was 4. It's really fun to watch, especially when they are young. How old is your son Dawn? But yes, some of the parents get REALLY into the game! I'm afraid I don't know enough about the game even now to yell out advice much. Mostly I'm yelling 'PAIGE PAY ATTENTION' because she can be out there pickin' daisies if the ball hasn't been her way in awhile, lol.
And I actually did used to have the soccer ball magnet on my Jeep ;)

13-10-2009, 05:39 PM
Steven is 6. And yes, "pay attention" was yelled more than once during the match. :lol:

13-10-2009, 05:55 PM
I manage a team of six year olds so I get to shout at all of them not just my boy!! My voice has virtually gone by the end of each match. They did win their first game on Saturday though 8-4 (After losing the first four)!!!
