Attentive, not so much

The Larger Hooligan had an indoor soccer game.  It was a bloodbath, our blood, per usual.  He takes these defeats with great good cheer, even exuberance.

"Well, they made 8 goals, but I stopped about 8 goals
(He is playing keeper, lately. "Not goalie, keeper.  Goalies are hockey, mom, duh.")  
And we actually scored 2 goals!  Awesome!"  

He tells me this because he knows that I was probably chatting with the other parents and was not necessarily paying close attention to the game.

I am a failure as a helicopter parent.
