So I did it. I signed big monkey up for soccer on the way home from work on Thursday. I am so excited for him to get out there, he seems to be a natural (not biased or anything here). Only thing is, since his birthday is just past the cut off date the only way he could play on the 4 year old team is for a parent to assistant coach. Yes, those funny/horrific thoughts running through your head are right... I agreed to assistant coach his team!! I have seen soccer games, dated soccer players, love to look at pictures of David Beckham... does that qualify me?!?!?! Apparently it does.
I am SOOOO nervous about this. I usually need time to warm up to people, but there I will be in mid August thrown in with a bunch of 4/5 year olds (and big monkey) to help them learn how to play the great game of soccer. AAAAAHHHHH!!
Funny thing is, I am having more anxiety about big monkey enjoying it all than my lack of coaching skills!
