I love being a hockey mom! My 3 boys all play hockey from Sept to March sometimes April and life is crazy. There are weeks we are going 7 days a weeks and 3 different directions on the weekends but I wouldn’t change it for anything.
I love being there to cheer them on and yes I am known to be the loudest cheering mom out there, but in a good way. I am always positive and always encouraging them. There are times when i want to pull my hair out. Times our schedule is crazy school ends at 330 and have to get one son to the rink and on the ice by 4 and we get stuck sitting in traffic and then another son to other end of town to be on the ice by 430 thank goodness our town isn’t overly big so it is possible to get around fairly easy but when there is a train or traffic is backed up I have to just tell myself it ok we will get there when we do lol!
The kids have so many friends they play with or against so its awesome to go and I get to visit with friends, I love it. Its an awesome social outing for all of us. Am I a crazy hockey mom yes and I love it do I get a few looks cause i maybe cheer too loud. But, I am ok with it.
I love hockey, I played hockey just for fun when I was growing up every Thursday night and Saturdays. After chores were finished, kids and adults in my community would get together at the community rink and play. Our community was small (maybe 100 people), we would be there for hours playing. I loved it and still love playing hockey with my family.
I also love watching hockey my favorite hockey team is the Edmonton Oilers, I love them! I get to as many games as possible even though I live 2 1/2 hours away, usually 1-2 games a week. Its a little tricky when my kids have to get to hockey but thankfully my husband will take them to practice so I can drive to cheer on the Oilers, yup a little crazy my husband stays home and I go to hockey games, but I LOVE it and the Oilers, and watching my 3 boys playing hockey. Its my life xoxo
