The other day I met a friend at a nearby park for a community picnic. Her kids rode their bikes. After the picnic, we were chatting while my son chased her daughter around the park. She was on his bike. He ran. We paid very little attention.
When I looked around the park to check in on them, I spotted them on the bike trail as far away from us as they could get, but what in the world was going on?
What was my son doing on the bike? The bike had no training wheels. He was NOT wearing a helmet, and he WAS wearing FLIP-FLOPS. Not good.
I held my breath. I got ready to run. I mentally prepared myself to call for an ambulance and take a trip to the emergency room.
Then he did it. He stayed up!
I decided to pretend not to notice the flip-flops, at least for the moment.
|This is later in the day at home. |
He's wearing long sleeves and long pants to protect his skin. His idea, not mine!
