Flag Football and Mom does not mix

Seems flag football and I don't mix. If I have to take the kids to the games from here on out... I will be taking a book. I will NOT get involved. Yaa. I was a horrible person. I was one of those. I yelled at 3 kids that were NOT my own. Sigh. It's a long story, but the basics are:

1. 1 kid with ball ran near me.
2. 2 kids ran after him (from Tater Tot's team but not them).
3. 2 kids grabbed flag belt and would not let go even when 1 kid asked.
4. I yelled at the kids to let go. They didn't and gave me a 'who are you look'.
5. I used my "I'm evil" voice. They let go. There was silence. Got the 'who the f are you look' from other parents.

This is suppose to be fun for my kids. Guess I will not be part of organized sports.

Hope hubby doesn't mind getting up at 7am to get going... kids have to be at practice by 8:30am. Other than my bad mommy moment... here are some cute pictures of practice... click to enlarge.

Tot always went to Tater's practice group. The kids were divided up into two or three groups to work with the 'coaches/parents'.

Tater had a blast. Tot was fine until they had a game with another team and they got his flag. Yaa. Major meltdown. Tot will have to play defense only until he understands.

Tater is one of the tallest on his team. Seems I have my kids on the 'young' team. Thank goodness!

I never did Flag Football with my boys. I wish I had now. We did soccer.

Ringo has decided he wants to play Rec Football this Fall. He will make weight finally. He didn't make weight before... it took going into 8th grade to make weight. So I'll let him play. He needs to know how frickin' hot and awful it can be and how much work is required.

Good for you. Where were the other parents? The way evil triumphs is for good people to do nothing.
