My daughter has always been highly interested in and passionate about ice skating...her favorite figure skaters are Yuna Kim and Yulia Lipnitskaya. When she turned three a few days ago, we knew exactly what we'd do to celebrate, as she is now "of age" to be able to do so: ice skating!
A three year old ice skating sounded like a hit or miss situation...it could have ended up being an epic fail, or she could have ended up enjoying it. We weren't sure what would happen, but as it turns out, she took to it quite easily, and absolutely loved every second. At first, my husband just held onto her hands while he skated them both around the rink, but by the end of the session, she was pushing herself forward....it was adorable. My son and I watched and took pictures...and threw a fit and ate cheerios. You know, the usual.
Anyhow, we've decided to sign her up for lessons. When our daughter was born, my husband thought for sure the first thing we'd sign her up for would be kung fu or some other martial art....but newsflash, yall: kids have minds and interests of their own, which you can't predict. Our girl loves ice skating now, so that's what she gets to do.
