I’ve never been a sports mom. My step-daughter did lots of cool things, but the kind of sports where we had to spend lots of time in bleachers or stands was not among them (thank you, Ashley).
However, if I had been a sports mom, this is the kind that I would have liked to be (but would probably not have been):
I have watched this video at least 15 times since I first saw it last week on Fit and Feminist Caitlin Constantine’s timeline. Every single time I love it, love it, love it. This woman looks like she’s a lot of fun. She exudes confidence and joy. And though her kids probably want to just die when they see her dancing, I totally admire her.
She’s got the moves.
And she’s having a blast. Which is more than I can say for most of my circle for the past little while.
So if you need to smile, just hit repeat on “When you bring your Mom to a Golden State Warriors game.” And if that doesn’t do it for you, try this adorable little scene that has nothing to do with sports. Yes, this is what the events of late have reduced me to.
