This morning, while driving my darling daughter, Kaylyn, aka "Thing 2" aka "Little Mama" aka "Her.") to school this morning, I happened to mention to her that I found out that I had blog readers who read my blog every day but don't "follow" me on Google so I want to give a Shout Out to Natalie, Gabby, Deja and everyone else at Nancy Corzine.
Anyway, I told Thing 2 this and she mentioned that she hadn't read my blog in several weeks because, and this is SO Her, I didn't talk about Her so she (Who? Her. Huh.) saw no reason to read her own mother's blog. What?!?!? I risked my life to give birth to Her (breech birth, placenta previa, blah blah blah) and she can't be bothered to read my blog because I haven't mentioned Her? Fine, I said. I'll mention you, I said. I'll be more than happy to tell everyone, including everyone at Nancy Corzine who all know and love Her (just ask Her, she'll tell you that), that She (Who? Her. Huh.) will NOT be participating in the Spring Season of Hockey because SOMEONE (Who? Her. Huh.) is getting a big fat PHAIL in one class, which has brought her GPA down below 3.0, which is the requirement for both of my offspring to participate in their chosen sport.
She (Who? Her. Huh.) has been playing hockey since her brother tied pillows to her legs, plopped a helmet on her head and stuck her in goal in the garage.
That was the start of her promising hockey career and she moved up through the ranks
and even made it to the Coast Cup Championships several times, although she's never had the privilege of actually hoisting the Cup as a Champion. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride:
This is the first time she will be sitting out a season but hey, SOMEONE has become a bit of slacker in her freshman year and now She must pay the piper.
Now the drawback to Her not playing hockey is keeping her occupied for the next three months. And by "occupied" I don't mean sitting in her cave of a room playing video games and watching all those skanky teen dramas on the CW. That's what caused her to slack off on homework and receive that big ol' "F" which does NOT stand for "Fantastic" on her mid-quarter progress report.
So all you faithful followers over at Nancy Corzine, I'm sure you'll be graced with Her presence when she goes on Spring Break. No sleeping in until noon for Her. And if anyone has suggestions on how else to keep her occupied and hopping while she is benched from hockey, let me know.
All suggestions will be considered.
