Toddlers and Tailgating

1 Sep


Tomorrow kicks off the 2012-2013 season of USC football. Usually, I would be excited and looking forward to a fun day at the Coliseum, screaming and cheering on the team, but I am thinking this season might be a bit different. Here is why:


Last Saturday we did a “trial run” with the girls by taking them to the annual football picnic. Let’s just say that we learned football, yelling, heat, sweating, long lines, big strollers,diapers, bottles and crying don’t mix! There is nothing like trying to change a baby in a bathroom without a diaper changing station. Talk about getting creative. Which reminds me, I believe there needs to be a law which states every public bathroom must have a diaper changing station! Enough said. Anyway, back to football. After a very long day, my wonderful mother-in-law and I decided that we need to rent a “mini wini” and start a babysitting service in the parking lot of the stadium.

I think it would be a huge success. Here’s how it would work; ;you drop off your kid(s) at our tailgating area. You sign a consent form that basically says we are not liable for any damage done to your kid while in our care and you take off. From there we will entertain. Actually, the large flat screen TV will be the entertainment. We will have tents set up in a row for “nap” time. We will have a healthy snack that will be given at half-time. We will ask the marching band to stop by and maybe a mascot or two. We will charge a reasonable fee, and in our lounge chairs, while sipping on chardonnay, we will “tailgate with toddlers” (mine included.) Brilliant idea, right?

Okay, so back to reality; I will not be going to many games this season. I guess I am okay with it. Watching the game from the comfort of my home, will be much better than trying to calm down screaming babies who don’t want to sit still, while in the company of 90K fans. Once again, the responsibilities of motherhood just aren’t fair (*inset BIG long sigh here*) So until the day comes when I can go to a game childless, I will dream šŸ™‚

Blessings ~ Summer
