A True Canadian

Dispute having to wear skates that were way too big, not staying upright for more then two seconds, and being quite worried that he wouldn't get to meet Emma since mommy fell (don't worry we explained that since I only fell on my knees and not my stomach he'd still get to meet Emma) he LOVED skating!

This made me, as a Canadian, feel much better; especially after discovering that Ben is slightly disturbed by hockey! Apparently we really drilled home the fact that hitting and pushing are bad choices. After thirty seconds of hockey he started asking, with a very worried expression, "Why are they pushing?" and "Why are they being disobedient on the ice?"

Hmmm....maybe we should hold off on the hockey thing till he's a little older.

In the mean time we'll stick with arranging his nap time to be during key games and only allowing him out after the "disobedience" is over for the medal ceremonies, where he'll ask "Why is everyone singing in the tabernacle?" and "Why are they holding broccoli?"

You have to admit, from far away they really did kinda look like broccoli.


  1. so stinkin funny. I was dying!! I started out thinking, I didn't know Tyson ice skates... then I realized he just looks so good out there next to Ben. :) What a fun experience.
