My kid got discouraged a couple sessions from harmless falls, then it got difficult just to try and go skating, even though we were trying to keep it fun. Ended up just pulling him on a sled most of the time.

I figured out that mine likes to bump me with the walker, see me take a tumble, then he will make himself tumble too. He's giggling himself silly on the ice at that point.
Yeah that's what I'm gonig to do today. We're going to go buy a helmet and go skating.

Wondering how long until I can get skates for my niece. She's 5 weeks old and when I saw her, her feet were the size of my thumb.
Soon!
