F line downtown/ going to soccer tots: Everyone thought I was crazy when I signed my 18 month old daughter up for soccer. I understand that she is quite young for organized sports, but the kid loves balls, loves to run, and there is an adorable uniform involved. Plus, when you stay home with your kid all day long, you have to come up with a few scheduled activities to keep your sanity. So far, we have done swimming, music, baby sign language, and gymnastics. Why not soccer?!
The first few sessions were as to be expected; kids all over the place, laying down in the middle of the field, taking their shoes off, crying, you get the idea. However, most of the group really started to get it by the 3rd or 4th class. My little Beckham was doing all the stretches, running in and out of cones, kicking the ball into the goal (and shouting "GOOOAAAL!"), and doing most of the obstacle course.
What does this have to do with riding Muni? Well, apparently people love to see a kid in uniform on their morning commute. Every time we make the 45 minute shlep to the filed, Leila gets peppered with questions and comments. Maybe I should dress her up everyday!
