Tonight’s glass of wine is brought to you by an epic parent fail...a huge lesson for a new hockey mom. 🤦♀️ I went to bed last night with anxiety and apprehension of having to bring, gear up and pretend like I know what I’m doing for my son’s first hockey game... BY the way, I SWORE I would never be a hockey mom. Ha! Proof right here how much my little man has my heart.
As a single mom who has never been exposed to sports much, this was very intimidating.
Woke up at 5 am to be on the ice for 7:30, (oh, did I mention it was an hour drive away), got lost, could not figure out which change room we were in (these things I am finding are hardly ever clearly marked), thank God my little man saw someone who dressed at home and was wearing their team jersey! We confidently walked to our change room, aka “sneakily followed”, and I proceeded to put his gear on.
Now let’s talk about this gear! These things should come with step by step IKEA style instructions. With left, right, up and down arrows. God please even colour code it or something! Thanks to my clever thinking I was able to incognito style “check my messages” ....check out the picture of my little rookie in his full gear I took at the last game when he was geared up properly.
I almost tore the skin off my fingers trying to lace up his skates as “tight as dad does”, worried if they were too lose he’d break his ankle or something.
Okay, 5 minutes left to get ready.. right the helmet! ........ 🏻🏻🏻 read rest in comments below... #natalielaurin #createthelifeyouwanttolive
