BubTar and the Cheerleaders

Sorry for the radio silence, Josh and I started back to school this week AND I'm sick (No, not THAT kind of sick! I know what you're thinking.) There is nothing and everything going on around here, but not much to say about it! However, I do have a little gem of a BubTar story...

Last weekend, we went to a local professional hockey game because he was the top popcorn seller in our cub scout district and he had the opportunity to go out on the ice. Let me tell you, hockey is something else! Oh my. 3 fights in the first 10 minutes, but it sure was a fun sport to watch. Even Josh, who hates every sport on the planet, would like to go again! After the game, BubTar got to go out on the ice, but they wouldn't let Josh or I out with him. The poor kid was confused and we were trying to give him directions from the other side of the plexiglass and he couldn't hear us no matter how loud we spoke or how dramatically we gesticulated. The cheerleaders were in the penalty box right next to us and saw our predicament, asked us his name, and then pulled him into the booth so I could take a photo. He was like an adorable little deer in the headlights. He stood way far away from them, perhaps due to a fear of contracting a case of The Cooties, so they scooted closer to him so I could get a shot.

On the way home he said, "Mom, you know that first picture you took?" I said, "The one with the pretty ladies?" He grunted, "Yeah. That one. PROMISE me you'll never show my friends that one! It is soooo embarrassing!"


Somehow, I think he MIGHT feel a little bit different about this picture in a few years. Haha!

Cheerleaders at a hockey game? What a delightful merging of Canadian and American culture.

Poor guy will wonder where his head was at a few years from now. ;)
