"I want to be just like Dad"
Last Friday was the first mini hockey session of the season at Kearsney. What fun!
We were forced to go shopping for some hockey accessories (or must-haves I guess...) and left Mr Price Sport with a new pair of Maxed takkies, 2x pairs of lumo hockey socks (thanks to a buy one get one free special), shorts and shin-pads.
We also left the shop with a very excited little girl.
Why is she so excited to play hockey? Simple.
She wants to be just like her Dad. My husband plays hockey and so she has always watched from the side and now it's finally her turn! Dad is also very good at hockey and (yes, I am about to boast!) represented SA in the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
While I don't believe she needs to follow in any ones footsteps and that she must create her own destiny, it is so sweet watching Dad swell with pride! The day before this she also happened to win her first inter-house cross-country race at school in the U6 division out of 50 girls. This was Moms chance to swell with pride as I used to be a runner back in the day!
