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!

Maple Syrup, Hockey and Canadian Citizenship

Maple Syrup, Hockey and Canadian Citizenship

Hockey and Canada are apparently one and the same to some middle school students. Case in point, this enlightening conversation on my daughter's birthplace.

J: You’re Canadian, aren’t you?
McK: No, why?
J: You always smell like maple syrup.
McK: I do?
J: Yes, and you play hockey right?
McK: Yeah.
J: That means you HAVE to be Canadian!

Forget citizenship requirements apparently all you have to do is dab some maple syrup behind your ears, play hockey and you are Canadian!

Sounds simple, eh?

And just for the record she doesn't smell like maple syrup..most of the time she smells like old goalie gear.
