I took Sean ice-skating for the first time on Monday.
Some of you know that I was a figure skater growing up, so I was looking forward to taking Sean this first time. He has a lot of natural balance and did well, as well as anyone can do on rental skates. He really seemed to like it and I began to entertain visions of the two of us going off ice skating together, perfecting our double Lutz together, as all mothers and sons do.
When we left the ice, I asked him if he enjoyed it and he said “Yeah…. But I don’t ever want to do that again.”
Just as well. I would probably rather there be no sequins in his future.
