AAAAAA-OOOOOOOOOOOOO! Watch this video of my little superstar. Listen carefully for the joy and praise in my voice as I cheer for my daughter who is diligent during her soccer practices, who plays on the sidelines of her brother's practices, and who pays attention during the game.
Yeah, silence from Mom. It's wrong.
A parent on the opposing team had just made a remark about "that girl" dominating the game. I'm sure it was a statement of admiration, but by the end of last season some of these compliments sound like criticism. I'm a little sensitive. She isn't the tallest, fastest, or most aggressive kid on the field. She just gets it. So SHUT UP! Shut up before I let my baby girl kick your ass.
