Just Try

It may not be pretty, but we have to try anyway.

I told my son yesterday during his first time roller skating, “Here’s what we’re going to do: you’re going to move your little roller skate feet back onto the rink and we’re going to try again. We were invited to this birthday party and your friends are all trying it, too. I’ll come with you and help you.”

To sit at the table and watch would have been a wasted opportunity. Better to jump in and try than wonder what could have been.

    1. He did really well! We did go back out on the rink and he did have lots of fun. Then the siren song of the arcade games finally pulled him away from skating for a while, but I knew that would happen eventually 😁 I hope we can go back soon because both kids really enjoyed it.

I'd love to hear your thoughts
