heathrowga: (Amelia soccer)
Amelia started playing soccer last week on a city parks and recreation team. Several of her preschool classmates are on her team, and she loves running around the field in her cleats. It's fresh air for everyone, and Katie is part of the throng of small children on the sidelines trying to climb the fences and finding various ways to kill themselves.

I did not foresee Amelia coming to me and saying sadly, "Mommy!  No one is sharing the ball!"  Tom and I stifled our laughter.  He looked at me, and I explained to her gently that no, during the games, you have to go after the ball and try to take it from the other boys and girls. It's contrary to everything we've taught her. She's got to find her inner greedy self and steal! 

Meanwhile, Katie is itching to race onto the field, throw some elbows, and score a few goals if she can remember which goal is hers.
