I've been trying to think of an after-school, team activity that I can get Phoenix involved in so he has a positive outlet for his energy and frustration.
At first I was thinking tai kwon do, but you don't really get a lot of exercise until you've got a few belts under your....belt. Not really team-y enough either. Plus he probably wouldn't be into it unless I joined with him. And I'm not really into it.
His teacher suggested soccer. I've been avoiding soccer because most soccer people are douches and I don't think violet_rain would ever live down the shameful "soccer mom" label.
I don't even remember the context or the catalyst. These were forgotten in the eureka moment when hockey came into my head. Hockey. Now there's something I can sink my teeth into.
