Jimmy had skate board camp this week and I was terrified for him. He was so excited to be there and had never been to a skate park before. Can I just tell you how intimidated I was leaving him there in a giant dangerous park made out of cement? I was having second thoughts until I looked over at him and saw the look of bravery and anticipation on his face.
I said, "Jimmy, are you sure you want to do this? You don't have to stay."
And he looked at me with those big brown almond shaped 9 year old eyes with such reassurance and said, "Mom, come on, I can do this. I shower in broken glass."
