I’ve come to the conclusion that the Rampone babies are enrolled in PS:USWNT.
imagine w me:
Each player dedicates maybe an hour or two each week to teaching them something. That, paired with all of their life experiences and Christie never passing up a teaching moment, makes them the most well rounded children their age.
Just got back from the game and obviously the biggest highlight was getting to meet Kelley O’Hara, who I didn’t think I would meet because she signed like five autographs and then left, but I happened to run into her while I was walking out of the stadium. But some other highlights were:
1. Rylie and Reece running up to Hope and tackling her at the end of the game (and Hope had a huge smile on her face the whole time)
2. Shawna Gordon asks everyone what their name is and then introduces herself while signing autographs
3. Sam Kerr assured me she will make it to Rio with Australia and didn’t give me any grief when I asked her to sign my USWNT jersey
4. Hope signed soooo many autographs and was probably the last to leave the stadium and continued to sign even after security told her it was time to go. She was great and wanted to sign for everyone, but obviously couldn’t.
Christie Rampone basically has a nationwide (perhaps even worldwide) network of babysitters for Rylie and Reece at her disposal. If there is a current or former teammate, there is a babysitter. Case in point, Natasha Kai.
