The Sporty Mom

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Went to child birthday party at the roller skating rink. I brought my roller blades.

It seemed like I was *the only* parent there on the floor with wheels on my feet. In a chat later, I asked some of the others "Was I the only one to bring skates?" they confirmed that yep, I was the only "Sporty Mom"

1) I like the idea of being the "Sporty Mom" in the class *and*
2) Why dont you people want to have fun with your kids??

    I was the last child in a large family so my parents were close in age with many of my friends' grandparents. They weren't "sporty" but they played with all of us kids in ways that they enjoyed: bike riding (Daddy), roller skating (both of them), jump rope (Mommy), swimming (Daddy). It was twice as much fun when they were with us.

    I never have understood just standing around while the kids have fun! That's what second childhood is all about. My son was kind of amused / bemused that his friends thought his mom was "cool" because of this attitude.

Skate on!
