I detest you. I detested the "soccer mom" persona even before I had kids. Soccer Moms drive mini vans with soccer ball stickers on the back. Soccer Moms always have gatorade and healthy snacks at every game. Soccer Moms dress like they are going to the mall when really they are just carting their kids to every practice under the sun. Soccer Moms are organized and carry a whole first aid kit in their purse.
I drive a suburban (I hear you gasping at my gas guzzler), it holds more crap than your minivan and if I get rear-ended, my kids aren't going to be crushed. I prefer juice boxes and chips for an after game snack. Really, they just played their hearts out and deserve a treat. I dress like I am going outside, you know, in sweats. I limit my kids to one sport or other activity per season, because I prefer them to be kids and have time to play outside. You know, where there is real dirt. I don't carry a first aid kit, but I do know how to get to the ER if they are really hurt. Otherwise they are kids and are going to have scraped knees and bruised elbows.
