I had this dream that one day my little boy will pick up skiing, snowboarding or rollerblading and show us all the cool stunts that we never learn how to do. I guess it will be a faraway dream as Mal is a rather careful and timid boy and he will tell you how he is afraid of falling down when we urged him to take up a rollerblading class in East Coast.Last week, we bought him his first toy in Paris. A full size, 2 wheels roller scooter with a really cool helmet! We could have gotten him a 3 wheels one instead but we were afraid that we may end up taking a long time to ‘wean’ him off the 3 wheels and start him on a 2 wheels eventually like how he has gotten so comfortable riding a tricycle that he refused to learn to ride on a 2 wheels bicycle.
So far Daddy and Mal have been scootering around the neighbourhood, the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe and along Champs Elysee. Here’s a short video clip (which can also be found here) that I just did that took me FOREVER! thanks to window Movie Maker and the price to pay for being a cheapo. It is time like this that I wish for an iBook with its super duper iMovie! Anyway here’s the video, any longer video would KILL me!
