So last summer we stumbled into a huge victory. My dear husband created Tuesday Night Sporting Club. I was skeptical. Not for any particular reason except that I think it's overwhelming to host anything. I'm always afraid that no one will come. But, it turns out, people like to play. At least the ones that we know. They showed up. And they played.
We thought it would be a good idea to have a regular thing for our high maintenance kids to do. Something that involved other kids and running and a smidge of organization. Daniel named it Tuesday Night Sporting Club because it's on Tuesday night and we expected that everyone would be quite sporting.
I wrote about it for Portland City Mom's Blog. Check it out. I can not recommend highly enough that you start your own Tuesday Night Sporting Club. On whatever night you choose, but do it. Every week! You're welcome.
I'm Molly. I'm all in for parenting. I'm all in for good food. All in for big and small outdoor adventures. And really only partly in for homemaking. I want a Martha Stewart home and meal, but the truth is, we mamas just can't do it all. Not really. This shit is tricky!
This is a collection of musings and missives about parenting like you mean it. I mean really mean it. About how you can pull off a really mostly decent meal, keep your house kinda clean, do some of your laundry, and also even remember to usually feed your pets. But mostly about how being a mama is hard and we can totally rock it, but maybe that dream of perfection has got to give a little.
