We took the girls ice skating for the first time yesterday. Schatz really struggled with her balance, but Maura (who roller blades) was a natural. In no time at all she was zipping around the rink and doing little turns.
Me: You are a rock star, Maura. You are skating so well!
Maura: Well, the guy that works here told me that it's easier to skate if you don't think about what you are doing and just think about something that makes you happy.
Me: Is that what you are doing? Thinking of something happy?
Maura: No, I'm just really good at this.
