My Hockey Star

Have I mentioned before that Alex is a bit hockey crazy? Well maybe once or twice before.  Well his craze is back… and stronger than ever! I think getting him on skates a few weeks ago was the push he needed to find his love for the sport again.  Now on a daily basis we play hockey at least 3 hours a day – at least!  Alex has to wear his skates (Thomas slippers) and hockey gloves (his socks).  Often he will wear his helmet too (bike helmet or winter toque).   The stick of choice? His Team Canada goalie mini stick.   It is really quite adorable.  He runs around with his stick, chasing an indoor puck or ball, shooting at his little mini  nets.  It isn’t so adorable though when the two-year old comes out and Alex starts to hit the furniture… yep – not so cute.

A new addition this past week to the hockey craze is the need to wear his Habs (aka Montreal Canadiens) jersey.  He wears it while he is playing hockey, he wears it to the sitters, while he eats, and while he sleeps.  I have been able to convince him by showing him the food stains that it needs to go in the wash.  That buys me a few hours to get it clean.  But once it’s clean, it’s back on for another couple of days.

  1. That is so adorable! Andy will be impressed too! At least 3 hours a day is amazing!! Do you have the books “Hockey Numbers” and “Z for Zamboni”?

  2. i love that his thomas slippers substitute as his skates. 🙂 and at least 3 hours a day?!! does he want you to play along or is this solo play the whole time? if it’s the latter then i’m totally jealous!

  3. I was wondering if those were Thomas slippers! Oh, Alex you crack me up. Maybe some day he’ll be a famous hockey player and we’ll all go “remember when …” and that photo will be priceless 🙂 You never know ….

  4. I was thinking along the same lines as Sandra… typical Canadian boy! 🙂 Seriously, though, he is SO cute, and I love hearing about his enthusiasm for the sport. And I’m also now glad to know what Habs means!

  5. Just wanted to say hello! And that I love your header image! I’ve been looking for some new Korea adoption blogs to read and wandered over from a.e.i.o. Your little man is sooooo cute!!
