Go B's: The Youngest Boy Finally Got His Bruins' Sign
Stanley Cup finals two games to two last night, The Youngest Boy sat down at the kitchen table to devise his pro-Bruins sign for our front door. The Spouse and I tried to offer suggestions -- I thought that a giant Bruins logo with the word "BELIEVE" beneath it, like we've seen all around the city of Boston (see left) would be cool -- but he only wanted parental assistance with making the circle around the "B," nothing else.
In the end, The Youngest Boy was so proud of his sign, which featured his sketch of the Stanley Cup and names of some of his favorite players. As we pulled out of the driveway this morning on the way to bring the kids to school, The Youngest Boy was enjoying a happy kind of bliss because he'd just watched the final minutes of the Bruins' victory last night. (Since these games start so late -- 8 p.m. on school nights! -- we've been DVRing at least the third period of each game and The Youngest Boy gets up early and watches the game the following morning.)
Who would've thought that I'd be living in a home with a Bruins sign on the door? Guess that's what happens when you have a youth hockey player in the house.
