Youth Soccer Is The Root Of All Evil…Gina’s Favorites

Youth Soccer Is The Root Of All Evil…Gina’s Favorites
by Gina Valley

And, so it begins.

Youth soccer season kicked off this week.

We’ve already enjoyed the panic of missing cleats, insanity of shuttling kids between 4 different practices, and a trial run to the closest emergency room. And, they haven’t even played their first game yet.

They say:  “Pets make you live longer.”

I say:  “It just feels that way.”

We have 2 dogs, Bear and Ziva. They’re 1 ½ years old, brother and sister from the same litter of Labrador puppies. But, that’s where their similarity ends.

Bear is blonde, stout, and so laid back I sometimes hold a mirror under his nose to make sure he’s still breathing.

No, I don’t want a picture of poop.

I don’t care how amazing it is.

The two puppy parents in our home, who just happen to be my two eldest sons (“eldest” sounds so proper and dignified, doesn’t it? Too bad I’m talking about poop now), have worked out a detailed schedule to determine whose turn it is to pick up the puppy poop in our backyard on any given day:

With school starting, we’re back in the dancing swing of things. My daughter’s ballet interests means we will be tripping to a ballet fantastic performance soon.

Where Did My Cool Go?

Where Did My Cool Go?
by Gina Valley

I’m not cool.

I realized that today.

I suppose, on some level, I’ve known it for a while, but today it became glaringly clear. Because today, I realized I have become my father.

Don’t get me wrong. There’re a lot of cool things about my father. My dad is a great guy. He’s funny and smart and giving.  I’d love to turn into that part of my dad.

As is traditional with any quality 3-ring circus, The School Parking Lot 3 Ring Circus kept its audience waiting for the main event.

The Ring #2 of The School Parking Lot 3-Ring Circus was staged in the same parking lot on the same day, but the curtain rose after school.  Again, it was street performers, so to speak (be sure to get all of the giggles from Ring #1 and Ring #3 of The Parking Lot 3-Ring Circus,

Nothing brings out the inner moron in people quite like driving through a school parking lot.

And, nothing causes that moronic flower to blossom quite like the stress of the first day of school.

So, when you put the two together you’ve got yourself a 3 ring circus, The School Parking Lot 3 Ring Circus.  When that happens,
