Nothing says, "I love you, son" quite like getting up early on a weekend, to watch your son's soccer team play in the cold and rain.
Especially when they lose.
And one of the parents on the other team almost gets in a fist-fight with your son's coach, which was about the most ridiculous thing you've ever seen, and that's including those poor people who have to stand on the street corner in Statue of Liberty costumes during tax season, waving you into their quick tax return businesses, and that's some total ridiculousness.
But anyway, near-fist-fight and loss aside, it was a great way to spend a Mother's Day.
Except that it was Saturday, and not today, so really ............. um .................
