If you keep losing teeth, you might as well play hockey!

I don't know if any of you know this or not, but Zach just lost his SIXTH tooth. Yes, six! He's only 5. Make that 5 1/2. Whatever the case, he's losing his teeth at a steady rate, much like how he got them in the first place.

So with him being 5 1/2 and toothless and part Canadian, I thought it's high time for him to test the hockey waters! I called the ice center today and they have a FANTASTIC program for beginners. They have a learn to skate program for 4-8 weeks long. Then once it's completed you can try hockey for beginners for FREE for 6 weeks!!!! (equipment included). How fantastic is that?

Can you just see him now on the ice? So exciting. Now hopefully my Canadian counterparts and family will get off my back!

Wish us luck. Our ice time is next week!

So fun! Who knew they played hockey in OK?

I sure hope your tooth fairy is better than ours. Poor Lydia hasn't had much luck with having a prompt and timely tooth fairy. Last time we had to hang a HUGE sign in the hallway to help that darn tooth fairy find her way...

Ty is thinking if he too could lose some teeth he will get some money. It better not get too competitive around here!

As long as he's not pulling the teeth out BECAUSE he wants money, you'll be okay ;) I can't wait to see pics from Hockey...GO ZACH!

AWESOME!! I can't wait to see the pix! First it's Christy the soccer mom, now it's Christy the hockey mom....what's next? :)

Christy said...

Christy the gymnastics mom, coming to you this spring :-)

Oh, so it won't be Christy the moose-killing vice-president mom next? Come on!

But seriously, I want pics of Zach in a hockey helmet with no front teeth. How perfect would that be??

Christy said...

He does have front teeth! He is just missing all his others! LOL!

Things I love:
Christy the hockey mom - I do think you'd make a good vice president mom, too.
Zach and his lost teeth - If it were the front ones that would be cute. But the fact that it's all BUT the front ones makes it SO ZACH. OF COURSE Zach would lose all the other ones first. Why do everything the way everyone else does it? This kid paves his own way, thank you.
You finding great programs - I swear you always find the BEST programs in your city. The best YMCA, the best hockey (FREE HOCKEY!?!?!?! WHAT THE?!?!?!), cheap mothers-day-out, good preschools, moms clubs. You always find the good stuff!
Your funny car pics - Not only are they cute but you look GOOD in them. Scott is missing Christy tonight! I love that shade of lipstick, too (one more reason you should be VP, obviously).
You feeding everyone for Canadian Thanksgiving - Only you could make Columbus Day cool.

Aw shucks!

and by the way, Zach has lost his two front teeth already! Remember the first day of school TOOTHLESS pics? LOL!

next year you're invited for Cdn Thanksgiving! it's only fair since we're raining on your parade in a few weeks!
