I am a soccer mom, a football mom, a basketball mom, a piano mom, a soon-to-be violin mom, and a sometimes gymnastics mom.
I am also a summer swim team mom.
Out of the house by 7:45 am every week day in the summer. On the pool deck for practice by 8am.
Weekends are even more grueling.
At the pool for warm ups by 6:30 am. Then four or five hours straight in the heat (or pouring rain, since that happens sometimes too) to cheer on my favorite little Dolphins.
It’s exhausting. It’s time consuming. It’s a huge commitment.
And I kinda love it.
I love cheering The Dudes on in their races. I love seeing them improve each week. I love watching them learn and perfect new strokes and dives. I love how proud they are of themselves when they pull out their winning ribbons each week.
After weeks of hard work (by him), early mornings (for all of us), hours volunteering (mostly by DudeDad, I like to mingle), and a voice turned hoarse from screaming (that’s me, mostly), #2 had a BIG DAY in the pool.
With a time of 25.38 he qualified for All-Stars in the 25 meter back stroke!
He was so excited when he found out. Probably at least half as excited as I was.
Biggest. Day. EVER.
Or, at least of the summer.
Today’s post was brought to you by Scholastic & Frosted Mini Wheats and their Big Day Campaign. They want to help you and your children enjoy lots of big days this summer by reminding you of the importance eating a healthy breakfast (Dude #2 literally eats Frosted Mini Wheats on the pool deck every morning while he waits for his turn to get in the pool) every day plays in upping your life’s overall awesome.
Have a Wordful post to share with me and my co-host, Seven Clown Circus? Link it up and be sure to visit our awesome features too!
Let’s start out with amazing photos of the Provo Balloon Fest that are fabulously vibrant from Honey Mommy. Then Hollywood Meets The Mama; it’s an interview with a movie star and movie director for a new film (HOLY HOTNESS,BATMAN is that Shemar Moore?!). I always love to see what people are eating, and Arnebya dishes at What Now and Why. Lastly, everyone loves a good day at the zoo, and Love Life Family and then Some captured her day at the zoo beautifully.
