BubTar received rollerskates for his birthday.
BubTar: Oh, its my dream that came true!
Me: You really wanted rollerskates?
BubTar: Well, no, but now I really do and I think I could have dreamed about wanting them!
And he received all the safety equipment that goes along with them, which he calls armor.
He is very sad he cannot wear his wrist guards to school, because "If I can't wear them to school, nobody will know how cool I am, Mom!" What a pity.
Without further ado, BubTar's Guide to Skating:
Find your footing.
Smile for the camera.
Decide holding onto Mom's hand isn't such a bad idea.
*For the record, he was on his feet every time I took a picture...but by the time it would flash, he was on the ground. I didn't just keep shooting as he flailed about. :) His second time out went much smoother, though!
