Our life as a family and as business owners has grown to be more and more chaotic as the years fly by. Had you asked me to draw a picture of my current life five years ago, I never would have imagined we'd be where we are today and doing what we are doing.
The addition of the show "Hockey Moms" was in a sense something we've always joked about. We often joke about needing a camera crew to follow us around to capture the "shit show." Everyday we have hiccups that are just ridiculous. A recent example involves Clint and I both at work serving at the restaurant, trying to take care of our tables when the kids shuffle on in thinking its OK to disrupt somebodies dining experience to have us leave our table to get a golf cart "unstuck" out in the muddy woods-sad thing is I took Clint's tables for a few minutes and he actually ran out into the woods to help with the golf cart.
People always ask us how we do it, the show is a perfect way to let everyone in on our daily routines, schedules and survival tactics. Our crazy hockey schedule is something people will be amazed by, disgusted with, dumb founded by and utterly confused by. There will be families who can totally relate to us, families who think we are "doing this to ourselves," families who may think this lifestyle is near child abuse. Think what you may but I guarantee you we are NOT forcing hockey on any of our kids. "Hockey Moms" is a fun way to answer everyone's questions and show them just how we do it.
