A few months ago, I started taking my kids to the ice skating rink to watch the hockey players and figure skaters. Ever since we've
been going to the ice rink as spectators, my son has been asking when he
can try ice skating. He just turned 5, so I told him I would take him
as a special day out with Mom.
So, we got all bundled up and were really excited to go. My husband and my little guy came to watch too. Then, as soon as I put on
those uncomfortable skates, I remembered why I am so much more
enthusiastic about watching skating vs. actually participating in it.
