to bring out your inner child...

1. acquire a pair of fuzzy socks.
2. find a recently cleaned aisle of tile
3. make sure there is carpet at the end of the tile aisle.
4. Sliiiiiiiiiide!

okay, so not very mature, but I couldn't help it. It was the fuzzy socks, I tell you. They make me feel invincible.

This is especially fun at sleepovers. Of course, then we get into tournaments and fancy schmancy tricks, so I kinda like the simplicity of just slipping and sliding down the tile.

does anyone else do this?

made up of 98.822% silliness!!

My whole living room and my room have hardwood flooring...not enough room in my bedroom, but when I come home, you can bet I'm gonna do some floor-skating.
OMG, LOOK!!

...It's a siggie.
My Grandma's dining room had a hardwood floor, and she kept it at a high shine. There was plenty of slippin' and slidin' going on there! In fact, my grandma and her sister, my great-aunt, slid as much as us kids - it was a blast. One of my best memories ever.

The house I grew up in had hardwood floors throughout, but they were in BAD shape (the house was built in 1904), so we didn't slip and slide, but my beloved mother did let us rollerskate in there! (She was working full-time, in school full-time, raising 3 kids, and Dad was an over the road trucker - I'm thinking she just wanted us out of her hair...)

Playing in the rain is my favorite way to feel like a kid again. One of the perks of being a parent is I get to do it again without getting strange looks.

I miss my rollerskates. I was so good at it. I can't get into rollerblades. I've tried, it's just not the same.

We had a hard linoleum floor in the finished basement growing up, and we were allowed to sock-skate, roller skate and skateboard if we were careful. Wheeeeee! And it was great for racing Hot Wheels!

So we're actually back in the house I grew up in, and my son has sock skated and raced cars. We have some extra furniture and stuff stored down there since the move, so he's limited.

We thought of re-doing the floors someday, but figure we'll wait until he's past the age to mess up the flooring.
