Mensagem: 

I don't think it is related.  I think by "soccer mom" possibly she meant "mother devoted to her children, mother who spends time with her children, etc."  Think about it.  What is a "soccer mom"?  It's a mother who takes her child(ren) to soccer games and practices, someone who takes interest in her children.  This infers, of course, that she has free time, that she is not locked into a job from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. 

 

I wasn't there, I didn't hear the context, but...that is what I assume.
