Super Mom

And now it’s broken

We spent many hours at the skateboard park in Stilbaai.  The boys loved it.  I was very impressed with the moves they could do on the J-boards.

Quintus spent less than 3 minutes on the same J-board here in Klerksdorp and broke his arm.

Firstly I’m thankful it didn’t happen at the sea.  It would seriously suck not being able to swim.  Also not really being able to go on the beach at all, since that sand gets in EVERYWHERE.  I don’t even want to imagine what it would feel like to have sand in the cast!

After 12 years as a mom, it’s our first broken bone.  With 3 boys…not bad I think.

I do feel very sorry for Quintus.  It is summer.  It is hot.  The cousins and his brothers can swim and he can’t.  Playing games are close to impossible.

Here he is just before he fell.


Unfortunately as you can see from the photo, this place is not made for J-boards.  Too many cracks.  Not like the one they rode on in Stilbaai.


So ends our “no-broken-bones” good luck.

  1. Shame poor Quintis. How this heals supper fast. Maybe he’ll discover some cast fun or something.
