Well, I fought it for at least a year. Call me a slightly overprotective mother but skateboards didn't sound like something I wanted my son to get into. I had visions of him grinding "a la Jackass" and ending up broken. But last week "Mr. Chris", my friend's husband, taught him a few basics and he quickly fell in love with skateboarding. He was so excited to borrow Jack's skateboard and practiced for two days straight. So excited and proud that he even volunteered for a little photoshoot the following day... with the skateboard, of course!
Thanks, Chris, for teaching him a bit and thank you more for making sure he wore a helmet and pads!
