...He asks for a hockey stick as your walking to soccer practice.
Tavish has only ever seen one hockey game on T.V. and that was the Olympic Gold Medal Game almost a year ago (A Proud Canadian Moment ... Sorry Americans it's OUR Game). To be honest I did not even think he was paying attention to that game as I know my husband and I wern't (we were having too much fun drinking beer and socializing). Anyway a few months later when the weather warmed up I bought Tavish a golf club and his first response was "hockey, hockey, I want to play hockey," I've never bothered to tell him its a golf club. I really had no idea how much of an impact that single game of hockey had on my child. One of this favorite Christmas gifts this year was mini hockey sticks. It looks like I'm going to be a future Hockey Mom, well only if I can find place that lets kids under the age of 10 play hockey (the downside of being a Canadian Kid in the USA).
