Posted:Who has parents who as a result of their juggling and spinning have gotten into it too?

My parents tried juggling a few years ago when I was a littlie, but never bothered much. But now that I'm all into it, dad has started trying to juggle! He went out and bought a set of balls and was teaching himself, intending to make it a surprise for me! (but I saw the juggling balls hidden in his office, half obscured by something on the bookshelf)

I think it's really cute!

So anyone else have stories about parents getting all excited? Parents can be so cute! ubblol

Posted:My mum loves it, especially making flags.

She gets the poi out when she has visitors and shows stuff. When I am up there she comes out and spins with me. I love it heaps.

Posted:i'm in the process of teaching my dad to juggle. so that hopefully (for him) i'll be in his school teaching kids how to juggle next week.

juggle after drink, BAD. do poi instead, easiest thing to do while drunk (in my opinion)
[waits for LeMonkey to make a comment like "yeah, and he'd know best" or something else that implies i drink too much]


What're you looking at?
I assume you're being rhetorical?
What're you callin' me!?

Posted:Both my parents are jugglers, and did performances, workshops etc for quite a while, though it wasn't really because of thm that i started, i tried juggling when i was young but soon got bored as I was more interested in other stuff but then someone showed me staff at a party and i got into it, then started juggling and its awesome that my parents are jugglers.

Posted:My dad wants me to teach him how to juggle rings. I've never juggled them, but he seems to think I can pick up the basics of anything like that. Crazy man winkHe used to want me to teach him crystal stix, but he just never got the hang of it. Yesterday and today I was a relay for life event which lasted from 6pm of yesterday to 7am today, So i figured, all night eh, I'll bring some props. It was halarious because after walkingn some laps I head by our campsite to see my mum spinning my poi much in the same fashion as the little boy in the begining of eazy sunday 2. Made me smile bunches. Most kids at my school get emarased by their parents, I get humored by mine biggrin

Posted:I tried to teach my parents poi on a beach in Antigua last year. Bless them. My Dad was pretty good, but my mother just looked odd. My Mum is less laid back than my Dad, and it sort of showed - he just chilled with it, whereas she was too worried about how she looked, getting it right etc.
Might try and teach them again...

Posted:I stood in our livingroom doing the three beat weave (not much space but it was winter :P) and my mum came and asked if she could try... I thought that she would be the first person on earth to manage to hurt herself with sockpois, but no.... she did it perfekt! on the first try! I felt pretty worthless considering that it took me quite a long time to learn it.

Anyway I'm proud of her biggrin
