I’ve seen them wherever I lived. They roam around in minivans, arm themselves with enormous purses and yield cameras to document every minute. Of course, there are always a gaggle of young children following this individual – the soccer mom.
Growing up, I thought these women were targets for mockery.
I couldn’t imagine taking motherhood to the extreme and becoming a suburban cliché. But after watching two of my sister’s children last week, I realized these women have a lot of admirable qualities.
