I played hockey as a kid with the boys. There were no girls only teams. I quit playing in my teens and sold my gear when I had my first child. I ran in to a friend who suggested I play for her team, I was hesitant, but I said yes. I’m so glad I did! For that hour that we are on the ice, I’m not a Mom with a list of things to do that is a mile long – I’m a member of a team working towards the same goal.
