Oh no... I'm that mom...

Yes it was me screaming at the top of my lungs, they all heard me there is no denying it.
My darling son got his first goal ever in soccer tonight.

Now in my defense, I think I'm allowed to get excited...last year this boy that really struggled when it came to sports. At first we thought it was just a lack of ambition, he just couldn't make it all the way through a game. Then we learned he had allergy induced asthma and his lungs hadn't developed as much as they should have causing shortness of breath. A combination of medicines to help with the allergies, to strengthen his lungs and wow what a difference.

When he wanted to play indoor soccer I flinched, it is really fast and taxing. He had a few scoring opportunities last week but tonight he was in the right place at just the right time and BAM in it went with one minute left to play...the game winning goal...did you hear me scream?

Yup, I'm a soccer mom.

Isn't that what parents are supposed to do...embarrass their kids by being the loudest. My sister always had a cow bell at my nephew's hockey games. :-) Great job on scoring the game winning goal!

Oh I definitely heard you scream! As a former dance, Lacrosse, field hockey mom I can recognize those screams anywhere!

Congrats to him...and you too!

YAY!!! Oh, Angie, you're allowed as much yelling as possible. I've been a football mom to all my boys for 12 years now, so I know just where you're coming from.

My Colin was diagnosed with sports induced asthma too when he was 12 - that and allergies to just about everything. Of course there's not as much running in football as soccer, but there were a few incidents with him and his inhaler. But he did fine.

A big congrats to your son for the goal! I bet he's a proud boy today - as he should be! :o)

YAY ROBERT! I'm a proud aunt getting a little weepy-eyed, just wish I could have been there to see it for myself. Ang, give him a big kiss for me and tell him I said congrats on his first (of many) goal(s).
