I find myself always looking for things that my kiddo and I can to together to get us out of the house and doing something outside. Of course we do things like the park, and really anything that I can think of that could be fun for her to do and for me to do with her. Now that she is getting older, it expands the stuff that we can do and I find myself remembering the things that I did as a kid to have fun. One of them was skateboarding. Bella hasn’t really taken to that but she does love to ride her scooter. So we found ourselves at a school that I work at, her leading the way scooting around and just having fun. I followed her on an old skateboard I have, reliving my youth through her. Every turn we made, every time we came up to something I would get little flashbacks of my brother and I skating around for hours on end just having fun and trying things out. I want those memories for my kiddo, those experiences. The kind that give you those flashbacks when you are older and make you remember that there is more to life than work, bills, and money. Don’t get me wrong, I know that as adults we all have to deal with those things in the proper manner. But every once and a while we need to remember the things we did as kids. When we had nothing else to worry about except where we were going to go skate that day. So peace out, I’m going to go shred the gnar.
