HADD - Hockey Attention Deficit Dressing

Hockey this week was a actually quite smooth. Although Benjamin complained vociferously both morning and afternoon, stating as we got out of the car that he absolutely, positively, 100% without a doubt would not participate, he then got dressed with no complaint and had a good time on the ice.

We were even somewhat early, so the dressing process was not so stressful. I try to jump from boy to boy, encouraging them to help where they can, and move the process forward. They usually get stuck in their shirts, tangled around shoulder pads, and then caught up with leg pads on padded shorts. While I was untangling Benjamin at one point, Christopher put his skates on himself (a first) - I just had to tie them. Unfortunately, it wasn't until I helped him take them off that I realized that he had skated the whole session... with the skates on the wrong feet!
