You know you are officially a soccer mom when you travel for a tournament. As in, stay for the night. As in, spend way too much money to spend two days in the sweltering heat watching soccer games.
Which is where I was this weekend. We participated in a tournament in Hershey, PA on Saturday and Sunday. Hershey, people!! Home of Hershey Park and Hershey yumminess! Total and complete happiness. Stuff of my dreams, man.
- World renowned spas.
- Chocolate being used as facials in the world renowned spas!
- Mommy sneaking away to visit said chocolate facial giving spa!!
Reality was slightly different. Closest I got to chocolate in my dreamland was a spoon of my son’s Frosty at Wendy’s on the way home. Meh.
Aside from the chocolate letdown, our family did have a blast (despite the sweltering heat) and I learned a few things about life and boys and soccer which, alas, I am too tired to relay at this moment. What I CAN tell you is that bringing 16 children to a restaurant for dinner is not the best idea if you would like to emerge with your reputation still in tact. Which is why I drank wine and pretended like I had never seen those children before in my life. Soooo much better for the psyche.
