The Florida Panthers hockey game was the place we went to last night. A friend invited us to their corporate suite. Perfect! It is a decent sized room with a closed door, bathroom and just 3 steps below there are several rows of seats to watch the game in a private balcony. My little one can run all over the place, climb the seats and watch without bothering anyone. (except the grape he found on the floor and threw at a fan sitting below- ooops-sorry sir!)
He must have known something was up. The routine was different than most weeknights. By the time he woke from his afternoon nap, I was dressed in street clothes and daddy was already home. You can tell he felt a little antsy and wanted to make sure we were taking him. He would not leave our side.
The arena is right down the street from us which is great as well. We got there in less than 5 minutes and went up the escalator to the suite. He feared the escalator initially (not sure why since he has always loved it) but got on it the 2nd time around.
Got to the room and initially covered his ears from the loud music but was VERY intrigued by the ice and the skaters warming up skating around. He did this the entire time on and off depending on the volume. At first he sat and trembled a bit. I guess he was nervous but he cracked a smile as he covered his ears. The cold was unexpected too! Should have known. Duh, an ice arena? lol
Other than getting scared with the loud BOOM and crowd cheering when they scored, I would like to say that he liked it! In fact, if there was a break with no players on the ice he would get upset and request the dvd player and start whining but the minute they came out he would run to see. In case you missed that attachment story regarding the dvd player please refer to the Disney post. We didn't take it so that we could break up that routine.
We didn't last the entire time but for about an hour and a half he was very into it all. I wish hockey had no breaks in between! those were the hardest for us. I think, given the chance, this is something he would eventually get used to watching because of the non stop action.
His eyes also easily followed the puck! Shoot, I could barely see where it was...lol
In other news, he had a good week in school. The teacher said he passed his first ever vocabulary and reading test with zero wrong!
He has also been trying to speak a little more. It sounds like gibberish but it's a lot more than before. It sounds like "ghsikhglkixhlgkhlxikdglhi MOMMY" He is for sure more aware of things going on around him and pointing to words on the classroom wall in school!
Lastly, I chelated today! yup! I did an iv push with vitamin c, dmps and glutathione. My husband and I would like to try for baby # 2 and I want to make sure I am as toxic free as I can be! I had done this once last year and just like then, I felt a little nauseated within 10 minutes of it and it wore off hours later.
In any case, TGIF!!!!!!!!
