I am sitting in the bleachers of a middle school gymnasium waiting for Chewie's first orchestra recital. There are about 40 5th graders and about 25 middle schoolers. Students had to arrive at 6 15. By 6 30 the bleachers were almost full. Now, at 6 45, it is standing room only. The bleachers were obviously made for tweenagers and not overweight middle aged moms! The crowds are still coming. Would I be a bad mom if I said I hope it is a short concert?

School sports are never geared to the comfort of parents...

My son hasn't been involved in sports in years.

My girls - they still have a couple of years before they can get involved.

I still have 2 years or so to avoid the discomfort of little league bleachers...
