Extreme sports and motherhood

Rollerskating whilst caring for a child is not advisable

I do find pushchair-less pedestrians can amble along far too slowly at times, would it be rude to get a horn, or bell to let them know you want to get past? It is your ‘vehicle’ after all. I once tried skating whilst pushing 3 wheeler – prat. Well I only moved to Brighton for the rollerskating facilities, then was barred due to pregnancy. Still don’t do it for fear of breaking wrists (and not being able to carry child) pehaps now he’s walking I can give it another whirl. Have found that motherhood has brought on more ‘preservation of life’ decisions. When faced with a red run on a ‘back in the good ole days’ skiing holiday, I chose life, Why throw myself down a mountain, ridiculous, I might break something, and not be able to look after the children. Stick to blue runs, like a walk in the park.

  1. You can go back to extreme sports if you want, just after bearing your child. Don’t see any good reason why some pregnant women or a mother or father, carrying their babies on their back and risking their childs’ life, just for an extreme reasons. It may cause trauma to their babies.
