Andy and I have taken Carter on tricycle rides while skating. She’s always been fascinated by our skates, so I got her a pair of her own. Princesses, of course!
We geared up with pads and a helmet (nerdy, but safety first!), and donned the skates. It was completely wobbly and totally fun! Carter did an awful job, but she had a ball attempting to skate. We “skated” – mostly dragging her! – to the mailbox. By the end of the adventure, she was more stable, and she was able to recover from a slip. But she’s not going to be an Olympic skater any time soon!
“Look! I’m skating!”
After many giggle-filled wipe outs, Daddy carried her back home. She’s mostly boo-boo free, but she’s got two tiny blisters from her new skates. Yes, they require band-aids.
