EVERYONE REMEMBERS the first time they tried on roller skates. If it wasn’t an unmitigated disaster, you’re a very lucky person.

Little Joey from Dublin got a pair of skates from Santa this year, and his dad Ciaran helped him with his first go around the house.

Predictably, it did not go well:

“I could hardly hold him I was laughing so much,” wrote Ciaran. Well he did a great job, considering the circumstances.

Ciaran posted the video in the very early hours of Christmas morning (that dad life) – and since then, it’s been watched over 85,000 times on Twitter.

He has promised an update when Joey gets the hang of his skates. We can’t wait.
