Tiny Talk Hockey Edition
Tiny Talk Tuesday celebrates our children and their view of the world. They continually make us laugh and by recording their Tiny Talk we can focus on one of the many JOYS of parenting! If your kiddos made you laugh this week (don't they always), then feel free to share the humor! Check out more Tiny Talks with Mary.
This weekend was the last weekend of the winter hockey season for That Other Kid. We celebrated all weekend long with practice and trophies Friday night, then a birthday party and a Dallas Stars game with a MiniMite Shootout during 1st period intermission Saturday. Then Sunday they had their last game which they won 5-2 to a team they had previously always lost to! It was an award winning weekend to be sure.
That Other Kid was in the shootout and was VERY excited all night Friday night and Saturday during the day. However, on the way to the American Airlines Center I think it started sinking in that he would be doing a shootout in front of thousands of people! He said, "I don't think I can do this. I'm sooooo nervous! I don't feel very good! How many people will be there?" This was repeated for the whole 45 minute trip downtown. Then once in the locker room getting dressed in his hockey gear...he repeated it again. I told him to relax and do his best! He would do fine....and he did! I think the thing that got him was that he was 1st in line to do the shootout!!
I was so proud of him...and honestly I would have been incredibly nervous too! We don't do well in crowds!! Anyway here are a couple of pictures from the weekend...Enjoy!
