I was planning to give Matthew a guitar and some more books (he is collecting the Classic Starts series) but the husband insisted we buy him skateboard. Since he needed someone to teach him, he bought two – a longboard and a skateboard, for the two of them. I wasn’t happy about it, but what can I do? It’s his gift. If I had my way, I would have given him a cheap digital camera or even an iTouch (complete with Iphone 4 wood cases) – but that would be too much. Heehee.
By some twist of fate, Edil met an accident a day after Christmas, using the longboard. He fractured his clavicle and is required to wear a brace for a month then not use it too much for 6 months. It is a great inconvenience for us but I am thankful it was only a fracture, it could have been something worse.
The skateboard is now officially used as display from now on.
