Skater Girl, age 8, was so excited when she passed skating levels at her local rink. Skater Girl loved mastering a new element, and couldn’t wait to get on the ice. Then came lessons with a private coach, and she loved the idea of competing. When discussing ISI (recreational) or USFSA (competitive), she decided, on the spot without even seeing a competition, that USFSA was for her. Competitive? Sign me up!
“Wait a minute, Skater Girl” I said to her as we discussed this at home. “Let me tell you a story….”
This is how my daughter learned the story of Nancy and Tonya. It didn’t sway her. I think I even showed her the famous video of Nancy crying “Why?” Skater Girl could compete, but I was slightly cautious, Skaters and Skater Moms, it might be…scary.
Now that (my) reality is disclosed and out of the way, I will tell you that most Skater Moms have a great sense of humor about skating.
My favorite character? The Skater Moms, played by the same actress. I approached the actress after the show, to let her know how much I enjoyed the show and her performance.
I proudly introduced myself as a Skater Mom. I wondered, did I scare her?
