So fast forward, it has been 11 years this May since I graduated college and I became a mom almost 8 years ago.
I still haven't worn a wooden necklace since way before college, but I have become the "field trip mom" in all other areas which is OK with me.
When I ordered my new company car last fall, I succumbed and ordered a mini van and I have come to realize I may never drive anything else, but at least I didn't have to buy this first one since it is a company car.
chaperoning field trips when my work schedule allows.
And I have come to love spending our Friday nights and Saturday mornings in the Spring and Fall at the local soccer fields. Last night was our oldest's last game of the season and she was selected the game captain. I have to admit I didn't even know that they had game captains in the U8 league, but I was very proud to be her mom as I always am.
So yes, I will proudly say, I am the field trip mom as we get ready to head to the soccer fields this morning for our son's last game of the season.
