Uniforms

The team uniforms arrived today. I EXPLICITLY put down "Youth Large" on the application. That equipment Nazi Suzi knows how big Lauren is, and could have gotten her a Youth Large. Even an adult small would have been better than that Youth Medium. Her arms look like bleached sausages coming out of those tiny sleeves. Poor girl, it’s a gland thing.

And who picked those uniform colors??? We got this dark maroon, which looks like dried blood. What happened to red and white tops with the star gradation? We talked about this at the last team meeting. The worst thing is, I bought Lauren the X32Pro Adidas soccer cleats the ones with the cute red stripes, well they clash embarrassingly with the uniform socks.

I'll have to waste a Sunday to take her back to get a new pair of cleats. The real pity is my Ann Taylor kick-arounds I got because they matched Lauren's red stripes. Suzi should immediately be replaced.

It's a good thing that Maria has the same shoe size as me. If I haven't told you, Maria's our housekeeper. Now that we got over the early earring incident, I've freely started giving her all my old shoes, rather than just throwing them out. I only take out half the price from Maria’s pay, that’s right I said half, so everyone wins!

My daughter too has a weight problem and plays soccer. Have you noticed any changes in your daughter’s body when she is done with soccer?

What kind of kid cares about the colour of her uniform or cleats? They will just be getting muddy soon anyway.

Miguel, I don’t know how they do it in Columbia, but we in the USA have a thing call patriotic pride. My appearance is important to me and my daughter - you would understand that if you were from this great country.

I know just what you mean about the maroon uniforms! My son had an ugly maroon color uniform last year on his recreation team (PSA - Piscataway Soccer Association). Horrid!

Why do you feel so entitled to everything? Why are you pushing looks and winning so hard with your kids? How do you think that is going to make them feel when they can't live up to your expectations? It seems to me that you are setting the bar so high for yourself & for everyone around you that it would be impossible to be happy.

It seems to me that you have a lot of money, feel that you are better than everyone else and are being very disrespectful to people, and I haven't even made it to the recent stuff. Why are you so angry?

I really hope this blog does help you becuase from what I have read so far if I saw you in front of me I would run, as fast and as far as I could.

I think I will bookmark you and see if what you are paying for helps any.
