How to Enjoy Watching Your Kid Play Soccer


It’s true, I am not a monster. Would a monster drag himself out of bed at an ungodly hour (on a weekend, in all manner of weather, no less)? However, I am pretty sure that my youngest regards me as a monster to subject him to such abject misery. I too suffered the discomfiture of playing in crap weather as a young ‘un. Who will stop the cycle? (Thanks for dropping by, folks.


I am a Sansei, with two teens, and a hamster. This blog is a repository for ideas and observations, expressed in cartoon form, by and large. A bit of a journal too. Feel free to follow me on INSTAGRAM @ WILTOONS, (the Twitter for people who like to go out) where I post a journal comic. Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Ah yes, kids’ sports. Baseball in sweltering weather, karate tournaments hundreds of miles away, etc. I’m not sorry those days are over. But…we have 9 grandchildren, and though we don’t get to go to many of their sports events, we do try to make it from time to time.

  2. Those sound pretty gruelling, I must say. I was in judo for many years, which I hated at the time, but it gave me a lifelong appreciation of the smell of sweat in a dojo.
    Thx for your comment Candice!
