Hockey Mom

The Boy started hockey on the weekend. I have never in my entire life been remotely interested in hockey, and know absolutely nothing about it.

However, in just one weekend I learned how to properly put on all ten-thousand pieces of gear, how to measure a kid for a stick, and the pros and cons of cages and shields.
I'm going to be a pro by spring.

And the Boy is amazingly good! And he LOVES it!

All the five year olds on the ice might be the cutest thing I've ever seen.

Awwww! That's so cute! I'm dressing up as a hockey player for Halloween this year.

I just adore little kids playing sports. Some of them are so into the play, others are spacing off and in their own little world. When Katie was 5, she played soccer. OMG, I can't tell you how fun it was to watch her. She wasn't really into sports, she was more of a day dreamer putting on shows for everyone. She'd be in a game and she'd be down field dancing around or running the wrong direction. Half the time I'm not even sure she knew the ball was in motion. It was cute at that age, but if you saw a teenager doing that stuff, you'd swear they were high.

My little boy wanted to be a hockey player but we live in Nebraska. There's probably a hockey league we could get him into but for now, he'll have to stick with football.

He looks adorable! You know that you have become a hockey mom now. There's no going back. Your life as you've known it is completely over.
; )
Great pictures.

Darlene, are you really being a hockey player?

D, N, AND K: Thank you! I thought he was pretty cute too!

Tami: Here in Canada it's pretty much your civic duty to put your kids in hockey.
