In attempt to avoid useless or (God forbid) too expensive birthday gifts for Tila I hint her grandparents what kind of things would come in handy for her. No worries, they know it!
She saw a man on roller blades the other day and screamed: “meeeee, mommy, meee! I want to do this!!” And I think it’s a great idea as Tila is one super sporty child, with some incredible motor skills and she’s literally bursting with energy about 24/7 so this is something that might even help her use some… maybe. Plus it’s an awesome tool for balance and coordination improvement!
My mom and dad shared my enthusiasm and volunteered to get her a pair. Shhh, don’t tell her but Tila is getting these most awesome, back-to-70’s, roller blades I’ve ever seen! And since they have them in both children’s and adult sizes I’m even considering getting a pair for myself! Or does a mother-daughter matching rollerblades sound just a wee bit too cheesy?
They cost €54 plus shipping €5.95(EU) (UK free and EU over £75) at Surfdome and they even have some in pink that don’t look bad at all!
