Soccer Moms…Oh Precious Ones

Back to school, back to chaos. What can be worse than having no time to do anything except survive?  Oh yeah…I know what is worse!  Getting a visual of an over-enthusiastic soccer mom!

A soccer mom is a middle-classed woman that drives an SUV or minivan. Her kids are perfect because she doesn’t have a job so has the time making sure her “little angels” do their homework before they do other activities which she has organized on the family calendar.  She sends emails out to the rest of us reminding us of the next PTA meeting (knowing damn well we can’t attend) and organizes the “healthy” snack menu for the soccer team that all of our kids are on.  She is not sympathetic toward working moms and has the time to embroidery her child’s name on their backpack. You know the type, right?  You can’t miss her….she is slim, has a botched up nose job and wears a velour warm up suit which she happens to have in every color.  2010 has brought on a new addition to this ensemble….a pair of Skecher’s Shape-ups. Come on…can her back end get any better?

I had a run-in with one today. I fled to Starbucks. The cashier suggested I go with decaf next time.

    Wow, this is great. The pants isn’t the only thing they have deficiency in, driving is the other. Mikala has had to deal with my wrath toward soccer moms first hand, get off the phone and steal more of your husband’s money!

    Better yet, when I drop my son off at school as I am running late still applying makeup at traffic lights. Her comes soccer mom queen, with her fresh nails, perfect face and of course the shortest tennis skirt or tightest work out attire a person has ever seen. I dont know what bothers me more, the fact that we are trying to get are kids to look at the person inside not the outside adn here she is will all on display. Or the fact I too was once that thin.
