Couple of rookie mistakes today. The first was embracing the sunshine and swapping my trainers for open toed shoes; the second was trying to teach twin boy and girl how to roller skate alone in open toed shoes….
I don’t know how much of a visual you need but take four arms and imagine them rotating wildly, add four legs with sixteen wheels attached and take away any sense of co ordination and you should be forming a good picture.
Add one parent with perfectly manicured toes and throw in the original equation of the sixteen wheels, four legs and four wildly rotating arms and then quickly take away half a toenail and any hint of red polish from the left foot and multiply with two bruising bottoms and you should get a picture of us twenty minutes into the lesson.
Finally add tears of laughter, aching little piggies for the parent, bumped bodies for the bambinos and wobbly cries of both “I can do it” and “you can do it” and you have the end result.
Success is not always about being the best but sometimes just being able to stand up straight on your own eight wheels.
