Maple had been asking me to take her ice skating for quite some time now. So I made arrangements to have North babysat, and I picked her up from school with the surprise news that today is a Girl Day! No dad. No brother. Just girls going iceskating! She was, indeed, very surprised and just as excited as I. “We can skate now because it’s almost Christmas! That’s right, mama?” Yep.
While I can’t claim she’s a natural, neither am I. We had a lovely time together nonetheless. I think next time we’ll opt for the double blade skates. 😉
