I took my children skating at the pond around the corner this afternoon. Be proud of me. I hate being cold. I hate winter. I am totally out of shape. I don’t even have winter boots. Seriously, feel sorry for me. But I took the kids out, me in my sneakers and them in their skates, and let them skate themselves silly. They’ve wanted to go skating with me many times before but I always had an excuse. Today they didn’t even bother asking. When I suggested it they didn’t believe me.
“Did Dad tell you to take us?”
“Are the cousins going to be going?”
“Did you really think of it all by yourself???!”
