Stiffy On Ice

Stiffy is a hockey Mom. And I never imagined how much work goes into getting the kids all set for a practice session. It took me less time to get ready for the prom then it did for her youngest to get all geared up to get on the ice.

Going to the rink with Stiffy was a real eye opener. There were boys, there were girls, there were two year olds (not making this up) that were all getting dressed to practice. Here is the list of the required gear:

Shorts - with built in protection for the family jewels
Shin guards
Long stockings that velcro to the shorts and go from thighs to ankles
More shorts that go over the other shorts with padding for kidneys
Elbow Pads
Neck Protector
Chest Protector
Helmet
Gloves
Big shirt that covers all of the above
Gloves
Skates

You rock Stiffy. I don't know how you keep it all together.

Guess it's cheaper (& smarter) than hospitalization & broken bones!!! What a good mom.

Being Mom is hard work...Tell us, how did Stiffy get her name?

I'm exhausted just thinking about it.

Your title immediately brought Lorena Bobbitt to mind. See http://www.toptenz.net/top-ten-famous-penises.php
