We've got three kids and they all play soccer, baseball, and on and on.  It feels like the weekdays are just running from practice to practice - and the weekends are nothing but games - often driving all over New Jersey.

Why?

Does anyone else feel like me?

Nope.  I only have one child and she is not interested in sports out of school day.  Her PE teacher is thinking track as she gets older since she is so full of energy.

I have 2 kids who play a different sport each season plus DS is on a travel team and DD does dance. Sometimes I feel like I live in my car. One of DS's friends is on 4 different basketball teams. I limit the amount of activities and don't encourage travel teams (baseball kinda snuck through but last time DS did travel, the furthest game was only 45 minutes away which isn't bad).

Thankfully not at this point. Ds plays tee ball but dd is too young. Next year they can be on the same team.

My boys were allowed to pick one sport per season because they also played in band and took Kung Fu

Only spring?  I enjoy the pace myself.  My kids compete year round.  Im never home during the week.

 LOL I use to be the mom sitting in the car. I always parked so I could see everything but I stayed in the car.

Even for practices.

We just have one child, but I think that is a very common problem of parents with several children.  Perhaps you need to have some limitations on extracurriculars so you have family time as well.
