Andrew has brought Julian ice skating every week for the past three weeks, bless him.
Julian HATES it.
Julian: "Ice is slippery. I don't like skating, mommy."
Last weekend was a debacle, or so I hear. I was "busy" around the house with Nora. To be honest, I am not one for skating, or arenas in general. I would much rather be at home, doing... "stuff".
Nanny and Pop were there to witness the debacle last weekend, from all accounts Julian was paralyzed with fear. He had a big fall the weekend before, and had not gotten over it. He would not move. Well, until the lady in the yellow coat came along. She had a daughter of her own. She saw Julian crying and she came to the rescue. She inspired him to skate. I have to be honest, Nanny sent me photos, but I didn't think much of the entire situation. Until later this week. I was driving Julian to his first eye exam. Out of nowhere he said:
"Mommy, I don't like skating."
Julian: "No mommy, ice is slippery."
Julian: "The lady in the yellow coat help me mommy."
Me: "I know, she was nice."
Julian: "I want a mommy just like her."
Me: "Julian! You already have a mommy."
Julian: "I love her, mommy."
Me: "Really, what about your own mommy?"
Julian: "I love you too mommy. I love two ladies."
My heart sank.
My stomach ached.
My son loves TWO ladies.
I guess I'll be going to the arena from now on.
