For hockey moms and dads

Don't know if I'm really supposed to do this, but received this e-mail and figured the moms and dads here would enjoy it....!


You base the next purchase of your new vehicle on whether it will
hold six kids, six sticks, and six hockey bags.

You know the location of every Tim Horton's within a 400 mile

You relate directions to places by the nearest arena.

Knows every single kid on every single team your child has ever
played on... But doesn't have a clue who his school classmates are.

You feel lost when you have a free weekend.

Your spouse waits until you decide where to sit and then chooses a
spot on the opposite side of arena.

You become a partner in a skate sharpening business to save money.

Can justify complaining about someone who gives hundreds of hours of
volunteer time to your son or daughter.

You ground your kids for a week (except for hockey practice).

Can rationalize spending $159 on a Synergy for a 9 year old but won't
spend $5 on a Birthday card for his wife.

When someone asks how old your children are you respond, 'I have a
'97 and a '99.'

Has had to use a grandparent to take kid #1 to a tournament because
Dad was in a Different province with kid #2 at a tournament and Mom
had kid #3 two provinces away in a 3rd tournament all in one weekend.

Has more miles on '05 minivan than a '66 Chevy

Practices make up a very large part of your social life.

You find yourself missing the parents of your child's team mates
during the off-season.

You refuse to make any plans with your friends until you check your
kids' hockey schedule.

Plans birth of next child so he has a good hockey birthday.

New baby's first word is Zamboni.

All computer passwords begin with 'hockey' or contain child's

Purchases new $135.00 stick because old one 'didn't have any
goals left in it.'

Knows a few 5 year olds that are good but 'lack focus'.

Has had kids ask if Christmas is 'home or away'.

Asked to decide between try-out and first communion - asked church
what his options were.

Received a letter from AAA Automobile Club and called for more
info about tryouts.
