Yes, I have both sat outside of the school for a half an hour AND have gotten a phone call asking if I'm going to get my kid anytime soon.
Let it hereby be known that I absolutely blame basketball for:
1. Further overloading my already overloaded brain. One pick-up time, people, please. I beg you.
2. My aching back. Watching 2-4 games from backless bleacher seats has got to be the cause of this sudden otherwise inexplicable pain.
3. The fact that I gave my sister a birthday present "wrapped" in a shoe box and plastic grocery bag. Yes, I blame basketball for that. It's complicated.
4. The sub-par dinner situation lately. TGFFVB! (Thank god for frozen veggie burgers)
5. Making me sportable.

E, age 5: Mommy, did you play sports in High School?
Me: No, but I was in shows.
E: Oh, you weren't too sportable?
Me: No, not too sportable.
E: Well I am very sportific.

Me: I swear it's all the bleacher sitting that's making my back hurt.
Daddy O: I can't believe you go to all his games.
Me: Why wouldn't I?
Daddy O: It's cute! I mean, you're just not, too, uh . . .
I think maybe the word he was looking for was sportable.
|I actually do enjoy watching my kids play. I just think I'd like it better with seat backs.|
