The things that will never make it in the baby books and other musings from a stay at home mom

A good sport

Paul's tutelage has finally paid off. After months of encouragement and near-constant exposure, Evan has identified "ockey" as his favorite sport. He'll stop everything to watch if a hockey game is on TV, and the rest of the time, he runs around hitting balls with the little hockey stick Paul gave him and screaming "YAY ockey!!!"

As a lifelong hockey fan, Paul is over the moon at the prospect of sharing the joys of his favorite sport with his son, and I'm sure that he can't wait to get him out there with a stick and puck. I keep looking at my teeny tiny 10th percentile son and wondering how in hell he's ever going to be hold his own on a hockey rink. But it occurred to me today that as the only 2 year old I know with only 10 teeth in his mouth, perhaps Evan was born to play hockey. He doesn't have much to lose, that's for sure.

That's funny and sad and hopeful, all at the same time. Maybe he just needs a 2nd love, just in case.

Too cute and funny. We have gotten a kick out of turning our girls into football fans, or at least Bucs fans. Did I ever tell you that M's first two word "sentence" was "Go Bucs!"

As for Evan's size and hockey, um, maybe he'll be the super fast skilled skater and will use his small size to skate around all the big, bulky guys! ;)

Can't say I'm a hockey fan but, ah, the feeling of introducing your children to one of your passions and having them take up the reins as well...pretty wonderful. And, um, good luck to Evan? ;)
