Hello and welcome to Mommy Scoreboard. It’s been several years but I remember starting my college application essay with the sentence, “You can always find me with a pen in one hand a basketball in the other.” I enjoy writing but the sport of basketball has been my ultimate joy. Fast forward and now I am the proud parent of three children, a happily married woman and an accomplished recreational basketball player. If I had to update my essay sentence it would read, “You can always find me with a pen, a basketball, a kid or two, a mobile device, a skillet, random toy part, a sippy cup, baby wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks in my hands”…WOW, have times gotten better!

So we do arts & crafts, dance-a-thons, imagination station, literacy, with SEL (social emotional learning) weaved all throughout our day. Sundays…

Only (Real) Fans Here!

True indeed that Im grateful for my team. In my previous post, “Why I stopped cheating myself” I referenced my teammates. I’m part of several teams, some including my immediate family, work, basketball and in this case my close dear friends. [Someone cue the theme song 🎡 to the TV show “Girlfriends.”] My core group…

Why I stopped cheating myself!?!

One of my biggest pet peeves is cheating. I’m not fond of cheaters on or off the basketball court. I teach my children about sportsmanship, integrity and respect for the competition. Yet, here I was cheating myself left and right. (Insert Sigh) It took months of being home and adjusting to the uncertainty of times…
