Lord Stanley, Lord Stanley

Gotta LOVE those Ducks!!!

Looking at the Niedermayer brothers, I celebrate the most for their Mom. They now play on the same team, and they have won a Stanley Cup TOGETHER. It wasn't so long ago when they were on opposite teams, facing off against eachother in the finals. Only one child could win and achieve their LIFELONG goal.

See, there's the difference between men and women - Moms and Dads. For the Dad, it's a win-win situation. ONE of his kids is going to win a Stanley Cup. HooYaa! For the Mom, it's agonizing. One of her babies is going to be devastated.

I tried to explain that to my hubby tonight as we were watching the celebrations.

He didn't get it.

Go figure.

About Me: I'm the mom of three: #1 Son (20), The Princess of Wails (17) and their baby brother - The Baby (6). I was a grad-student working on an MA in history until we were surprised - I mean blessed - with The Baby. I'll get back to it...someday (the thesis, not the kid - I have no choice concerning the kid). I am one of only a few people I went to school with who is actually using their history degree in my career (and to think my Father called it Basket-weaving!). I live a very hectic life amongst massive clutter. I call it a good day if we have managed to get home at night without losing one of the kids (no matter how hard I try!). Friends say I have a humorous take on life's happenings. The sad part is that what I write about is true. I laugh to keep from crying.
