I’m wearing mittens in July.

I made a mistake.

I asked my son what he wanted to do this summer. I suggested camps, volunteer work, baseball, soccer and all sorts of things.

But all my son wants to do is play hockey.

Ice hockey.

And where I live there is a lot of hockey available to be played in the summer months.

Which means that now that it is sunny and warm out I am spending my time freezing in cold, smelly dark hockey rinks.

This is sort of how I spend much of the winter months too.

I really have to learn to say 'No' better.

Sigh.

  1. Oh my god … that’s terrible. And what’s even worse is that I laughed out loud when I read this … HAPPY CANADA DAY (you are such a truly Canadian Mom!)

  2. Awww, sorry! Well, can you wait outside? You can pretend to be on the beach. Put on your shades, pull out a lounge chair in the parking lot and read a good novel or women’s magazine. LOL… Just a thought. 🙂
