Being a team mother is diligent work.
You need to heat cupcakes you unable to eat and manage parents that will get on your nerves but you cannot scold them.
It is tiring.
Much the same as everything else you do to improve the situation of your children, being a team mom is slightly making your own life miserable while making life better for others.
Truth be told, after numerous years on the sidelines of many cheer teams, You will get used to being less miserable while making life better for others. It starts becoming joyous.
Rules and regulations of Team Mom-ing
Get used to the game. Cheering for a block attempt at a kid softball game is not the same as this one. You should at least master the basics, and then the language. Bear in mind that you cannot keep running close to the football field when your child is heading out toward the end zone, or scream at him when he is on the free throw line. Of course, you can, but do you think he would want you to do this at this time?
Team moms are as important to their team as the coaches are, especially when the players are super youthful. They require who to lead them on the line, who to tie their shoes and who can be their mom on the pitch. What’s more, if your child is anything like my child, he just goes out on the field if you promise he gets a snack afterward. The team mom was my child’s most loved team member when he was much younger and particularly in light that she was the carrier of the after game snack. Do not let those kids lose faith in you. If for some reason you are unavailable for the season, let a more eager mom carry out the activities.
Do demonstrate your solidarity. Put on your team hues. Get a shirt with your child’s number on it. In any case, keep it jazzy. You know I know how rapidly work pants and limited time shirts can twist you up on What NOT to Wear.
Try not to go ballistic over wounds. They ought to be treated carefully and as indicated by the physician. In any case, running top speed onto the field shouting, “MY CHILD” is not part of the protocol.
Team mothers are a piece of the group and, all things considered, have a considerably higher obligation to show initiative, great sportsMOMship, and trustworthiness than the regular sitting-in-the-stands mother. Regardless of whether you need to remove a mom’s legs or holler at the crazy guardians on the sidelines, you need to calm yourself for the kids’ sake. When you feel the need to, try distracting yourself a bit or look on to the bright side of the game.
If you feel this job is not for you, stay away from it. Not every mom can be a team mom. I suppose you know that not every mom joins the PTA, or be the room parent, or volunteer to sew cheerleading regalia for their kids (yeah, some mother did this for us when we were much younger). Eventually, you will need to contribute your quota in ways that you can. You could try being a better mom at home; however, it does not need to be on the sidelines. In the event that games are not your specialty, something unique most likely is and that is cool as well.
