Welcome To My Blog!

Being a hockey mom just BEGS to be written about so when my daughter strapped on the goalie pads, I picked up the pen. Now I blog rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny.

Through the highs, the lows and the all consuming stink, follow me on my journey to get through each season. Us hockey parents have to stick together!

Hockey and Eyebrows

When your normal hockey locker room consists of 12 and 13 year old boys discussing bodily functions and balls, it can be a bit of a culture shock when you go to "the other side". The goalie has only ever done a handful of girl only clinics so she isn't quite used to the fairer sex. 

Case in point. Eyebrows.

Prior to practice she comes out of the locker room and I ask if she is ok.  To which she gives me the quote of the day.

Yeah. They are talking about getting their eyebrows done. I don’t know about this...

Well, they are teenage girls and that is what teenage girls talk about but she hasn't quite got there yet. Practice went great though and they earned brownie points for inviting her to Chipotle after it was all over.

We aren't in testosterone land anymore goalie girl....
