Soccer Mom Diaries

From Wikipedia : The phrase soccer mom generally refers to a white, married middle class woman who lives in the suburbs and has school age children. She is sometimes portrayed in the media as busy or overburdened and driving a minivan. She is also portrayed as putting the interests of her family, and most importantly her children, ahead of her own.

Tonight's schedule:

3:10 - Aidan emerges from school. There is no bus service for him as he is on a special schedule to allow time for swim practice.
3:25 - Arrive home with Aidan. Give him debriefing on the evening's schedule.
3:35 - Leave house for Bridget's school. SHE didn't take the bus today because she has UIL practice after school for 45 minutes.
4:00 - Arrive back home with Bridget.
4:15 - Leave house w/ Aidan for the 'carpool rendezvous'
4:35 - Arrive back home
5:15 - Leave with Bridget for her 5:40 swim practice

6:15 - Pick Bridget up from swim practice
6:40 - Arrive back home, feed Bridget
7:30 - Leave to retrieve Aidan from 'carpool rendezvous' site.
