I really like this stuff, guys. I travelled too much to ever take the reins of coaching, but I was there as much as possible, volleying with the kids on the tennis courts (I am not good but I can volley a bit to warm up the kids) and I would help out with soccer drills. I participated in the dance recitals and the Dad Dances. This is the quality of life we all strive to achieve with our kids. Nice.

No he knows I'm involved. In fact over the past two years, I'm the only one that is signing up the kids for anything. When I invited the NJ to come and attend the kids' activities, she says she doesn't want to be around me. So in part, I think they are signing my son up so that they can "own" this activity...pathetic. They don't get that these activities are for the kids, not parents. She's so bitter and angry with me that she can't even bring herself to enjoy the kids' activities. As a consequence, the kids are sometimes at these activities only when I have them...since she refuses to bring them.

I bet step-dad changes his mind about being an assist coach once he finds out you are the head coach. Gotta love karma!
