It’s that time of year when mobs of kids follow a soccer ball around the field! And moms stress out about having all the STUFF that’s needed for a good day, whether it’s practice or a game.
My end goal (see what I did there?) is to be able to show up on time and unfrazzled. And that means being prepared well in advance.
Let’s think about categories of what’s needed for a #momwin on and off the field.
The Girl Scouts are right! Be prepared.
Overall, I have a laminated checklist and an erasable marker on the fridge. You can have one for each kid or one for each sport – whatever works best for you. I make one for myself AND one for the kid. It’s never too early to start teaching them to take care of themselves. Plus, this avoids the argument about whose job it was to remember whatever we’ve forgotten.
I’ll include these three categories of things.
Gear and clothes for the kids
Gear and clothes for you
Snacks and Drinks

Patience, Persistence, and Play. Three words that can be applied to everything we do. Read what I’m focusing on this month and learn what grounds me every day. Hopefully it will help you, too!
