Chez Racetrack

The Racetrack neighbors had us over for dinner Sunday night.

It was a chance to eat and see their their newly painted home. (They went all out with sweeping deep blue and warm earthtones.) They had been waiting to paint and decided to act now before the summer and their impending arrival.

Dinner went quick and was delicious. (Lasagna with cheesecake. I gained about 2 pounds.) The Scrabble game afterwards tested the ability of the tired and pregnant. I won but only due to luck of the tiles.

At one point I mentioned that be it girl or boy Junior will probably play hockey. (How you can escape it in MN is beyond me.) It was then pointed out to me how expensive kids playing hockey can be. How much time is involved.

I thought about that long and hard last night while I was trying to fall asleep. It's not that I want Junior to grow up to be the next Domi. (Especially if Junior is a girl.) It's not that I want to change into one of those psychotic Hockey parents. I just want to Junior to have a normal life and with us living here the odds are it will involve hockey.

Although it would be kinda cool to have a son on the Maple Leafs. Might get some good seats occasionally. ;)

It's not that I want to raise a jock of some kind. I just think sports are important to character and the life lessons are huge.

Hmmm. Mrs. Canadian Hotness, FB's friend in Ontario, used to teach power skating.

Better stop there. Might have to go buy the kid some skates.
