It’s official: My daughter had her first soccer practice yesterday.
Despite the affected disdain I’ve been projecting on Twitter, I’m really very excited for her and not the slightest bit upset that this event has destroyed the last vestiges of my "edginess" by relegating me to the domain of “Suburban Soccer Mom.” Okay, maybe I’m slightly upset.
