The Diary of a Nouveau Soccer Mom: The Name

The Name

Nouveau Soccer Mom is a running joke between DH & I.

I never expected to be 29, a SAHMom with 2 kids and living in the suburbs, with an MA that I don't put to use, but somehow or another, I am and I love it.

I cling to the vestiges of what once was and adapt it to fit what is. I'm not ready to be a soccer mom in a minivan, so I'm reinventing the image. I can be a soccer mom with 2 carseats in the back of my Mercedes convertible. I can drag the kids on a sightseeing tour of St. Petersburg with stops for potty-breaks and a cute playground outside the gorgeous cathedral I did not get to see. I can convince my 3.5 year old that Japanese and Thai is a much better treat than a nugget. And I can do it in cute shoes. ;o)
