Tonight was a big night for us. Ryan had his soccer coaching debut (his soccer-anything, coaching-anything debut, actually), and Elizabeth played soccer for the first time.
Ryan and his team of 1st grade girls
I had one of my "bad mom moments" again tonight. Emma preferred sitting by the team, leaving me to chase the twins around 3 other simultaneous soccer games. Along our wanderings, we found some friends we knew, so we sat down to watch their game for a few minutes. And... then I noticed that Annie was missing.
And Ryan was holding her.
I asked him later how long he had held Annie. "Oh, about a minute is all. Everyone laughed when she ran out."
I can't even have a conversation at soccer games, I guess. Those girls run away so fast. And then I got to walk off the field holding a kicking and screaming 2-year-old.
