How Every Soccer Mom Feels During Fútbol Season
Being a mom is special for so many reasons. There’s the love that you have for your child, for starters. And then there’s all the amazing things that come along with parenting – helping your kiddo as they learn to read and write, watching them make friends, and of course, the moment that they join their first sports team. In this case little league soccer
Despite the craziness of life and balancing of hectic schedules, a fútbol mom always finds that magical, unexpected energy when it’s time to cheer on their baby at a soccer match.
Here’s how every soccer mom feels during fútbol season (aka the craziest sport season).
1. You’re besties with all the other soccer moms.
Let’s be real: one of the best parts about being a soccer mom is all the chisme. Latina moms love to be social, so it’s no surprise that you love soccer season. You keep up with all the gossip with the other moms, while everyone cheers on their kids.
2. There’s always a fear of running out of snacks.
There is nothing scarier than a bunch of ravenous, hungry little soccer players, and luckily fútbol mamás always turn out when it comes to snack duty. Is there a little competition to be the mom with the best snacks? Of course there is. This is little league soccer, people – it’s serious.
3. You have to be the mom who cheers the loudest.
If you don’t lose your voice from cheering, were you ever really there? It doesn’t matter how long, busy, stressful the week leading up to the game was or how crazy work and life got – soccer moms always have that surge of unexpected energy when it comes to a fútbol game.
4. It’s better to pretend you saw your kid make a goal than say the truth: you were scrolling through Instagram.
It’s impossible to catch every single goal that a kid makes, give yourself a break. Sometimes it’s just better to pretend to have seen the goal than to confess that you missed it because of Instagram. Moms are only human, ok!
5. You know when it’s time to bust out the custom-made soccer jerseys.
Those fabulous fútbol jerseys you made that say, “Go team go!” on them. Your kids might be mortified by these, but totally worth an eye roll from them.
6. Rain or shine, you’re there. With ponchos and umbrellas for everyone!
Being prepared – and not just with snacks and cheers. You’re prepared for every single situation, including bad weather. The other moms are grateful when you start handing out the extra rain ponchos and umbrellas. Your over-prepared abuela would be proud.
7. You’re ready to step in as the coach at a moment’s notice.
You’re not just a fan of your kid, you’re also a huge fan of fútbol itself! You know the game better than anyone, and you’re ready to step in as a substitute coach whenever they might need you. Which, of course, is rarely ever, but a soccer mom can dream, can’t she?
There’s something so fun about being a soccer mom. Life can be so busy and stressful, but when that unexpected energy hits you the second you pull up to the fútbol field, there’s simply nothing better.
