Smile! How to be a sports mom

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.

    Very cute butting lesson video!
    I admire my sisters who have tried to be a great sports mom. 1 sister and hubby are quite dedicated….3 children now in their mid to late teens..hockey (all play this last few years), plus 2 of the children each have a 2nd sport where they complete: soccer, gymnastics and cross-country running. Every weekend, several times after work…schlepping kids to practice, games, tournaments..

    The children are quite fit and they look it….they look like children from the 1960’s-1970’s …if one looks at photos of how children looked then, compared to now. (Readers: please do not get defensive. But that is reality.)
