Michael Skates...Mom Prays

This is hard for me to watch. Probably hard for any mom to watch. Michael is attempting what is called, in the skating world, a 7-set. A 7-set consists of flinging your body down a flight of seven steps while trying to keep yourself on a 2 and a half foot board with wheels, landing with your feet on the board at the bottom and neatly rolling away into super stardom of the skating world. Sounds fun, don't ya think??

These attempts were caught on video. If you're squeamish, these videos are not for you. Consider yourself warned. Viewer discretion is advised. LOL

After this day of skating, my boy came home sweaty, dirty, bruised, scraped, bloody and limping...... he looked like he'd been mugged. By the time I was done patching him up he looked like he was part mummy. Knees, elbows, hands.... :o(

But when asked if it was worth it, his answer was OHHHHH YEEEAHHHHH!!!! LOL

See ya next time! :o)

Wow - Mike, you really know how to roll out of a fall...except for that one time. You looked like you weren't sure you were going to GET back up. LOL

Congrats on nailing it! Does this mean you'll stop scaring your mother now? ;-)

OMG! I would die! No pads or anything? I kept waiting for a compound fracture! LOL!

*sigh* Sam just turned 4 and has already been asking for a skateboard for months now. I can't imagine. EEK!

Well done, Michael. Congratulations!

Becky, after this day he is voluntarily wearing his pads. Elbows, knees, hands. My next goal is to get him to wear a helmet. Don't know if that will happen though. Please start Sam off wearing these things as a matter of fact.....like looking both ways when crossing the street. It's just how it's done. Ya know? :)
