What Come Naturally....

For a long time, we have had a hunch that Lucy is going to embrace and excel in sports. Matt and I were athletes and loved every minute of it. Our kids are built strong and just look like they have little athlete bodies.

Lucy's first official "sport" began yesterday, with the start of "Soccer Camp." Seeing her geared up in her shin guards and cleats was adorable.

But today, when I went to pick her up, she came waltzing off the field with a sweaty brow and a dirty t-shirt, all while "high-fiving" the counselors. She was bringin' it...and I was so very proud.

Three separate people have come up to me the last 2 mornings, just to tell me how good Lucy did or how well she kicks. I haven't had the time to stay and watch the last two days but it is a priority tomorrow.

I can tell she is confident and having fun. I have to admit that I really want my kids to do whatever THEY decide they want to do in school...but to have two kids playing sports they excel in is right up there with good grades for me. I admit it! Go kiddos!

I'm a 39 year old stay-at-home mom. I have a 9 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. I have lived in the big city and in the mountains, but am happy to be back in the Midwest, raising the fam. I enjoy laughing, wine, bad karaoke, US Weekly, running, cemetaries, cheese sticks and short hair-dos. In my previous life, I was class-clown and a wanna-be comedian. In my professional life, I'm a journalism major with 10 years of marketing and PR experience. I dream of being a cast member on Saturday Night Live and working at Disney World as Snow White.
