Today J and I went ice skating together. It was his first time ever and my first time in about 12 years. We had a blast! A new ice skating rink just opened really close to our neighborhood and I set up a tour and discounted skating with my moms' group. My friend Kim was kind enough to watch N so J and I could spend this fun time together. J was a little nervous during the tour, but happily put on his cool rented ice skates and slowly walked to the rink. We had two wonderful instructors Gini and Lisa who offered to help teach J, but he only wanted me. So they gave us a walker and we eased our way onto the ice. J was a little nervous, but with the power of mommy's hand, he went for it. It was just so much fun! He did some skating on his own with the walker (with me very close by) and some with me holding his hands or the walker. He loved for me to put my hands under his arms and go really fast while he held the walker. Can't wait to go back! If you live in this area, I highly recommend going. Everyone was SO nice and the facility was really nice as well.
