Becoming a sports mom happens gradually. First it’s the preschool age where the coaches look like they are herding cats rather than actually coaching a sports team. But that doesn’t last long.

Before you know it your child is competing to play on a traveling or school sports team and they’re playing for the championship. I know. My kids are in sports. We’ve covered the gamut, too. At one point or another we’ve covered hockey, soccer, tennis, swimming, track, basketball, and a Minnesota Twins baseball camp thrown in there, too. Not to mention, all of the other activities that go along with childhood like scouts, dance, art classes, LEGO club, and safety camp.
