Hockey Tournaments and Sleeping Arrangements
Since the beginning of January of this year we have been going from one hockey tournament to another.
In order to save a little money for one of the trips (which is a four hour drive one way) the husband decided that he and Big Boy will commute with another parent and his son. Plus, they will share accommodations at one of the local hotels.
The other day Big Boy came home for lunch and proposed an idea to the husband.
This is how the conversation went down.
Big Boy: Dad, the other day I was talking to Trevor* about the hockey tournament and the hotel. He said to me wouldn’t it be funny if the adults slept in one bed and we, the kids, had the other. *giggles*
The Husband: Umm, no! I don’t think so.
Big Boy: But Dad, that’s what The Smith’s* did when they took me to a tournament a few weeks ago.
The Husband: That’s because they are married! That is totally different!
I sure had quite a laugh over this conversation and I had to text my friend (who is Trevor’s mom) to tell her the idea our children came up with for our husbands.
What crazy ideas have your children concocted lately?
