Proud Mama moment at the Seattle Thunderbirds Game


March 11, 2014 by Terumi

I can barely keep this one in, I am SO excited.  Ever since the hubby and I started going to the Tbirds WAY back when they were at Key Arena and long before we had kids, I remember seeing these cute mini hockey players skating at intermission.  They were so fun to watch and I really looked forward to seeing them play.  So the other night, all the scary learning-to-skate-on-sharp-things fears and bleary-eyed early mornings at the rink paid off because MY kids were going to be skating with the Thunderbirds.

We headed out to the Showare Center in Kent and I think we were almost the first people in the parking lot.  Then MY guys skated during the 1st period intermission.  MY GUYS.  My once teeny little preemie babies skated strong, skated proudly and skated with such big smiles on their faces.  They were the cute mini hockey players skating at intermission.  And I was the proudest mama in the world.

I could live in this moment for a long time.  Thank you tons Seattle Thunderbirds.  My guys really look up to you!

We went there and found it pretty stocked and they have cool benches to lie down on if you’re EXHAUSTED from an all-sports weekend!)


  1. Wow … goosebumps I have, Terumi. That is super cool!
