Dear Parents,
Dear Parents who enjoy bike riding with their children,
Dear Parents who enjoy bike riding with their children while their kids wear bike helmets,
Dear Parents who enjoy bike riding with their children while their kids wear bike helmets yet you do not,
Just wondering if you think their heads are more delicate than yours? You don't want them to get hurt, damaged or even suffer something more worse? Even fatal? Just wondering how they are gonna take care of you? Or manage without you?
Such an easy thing to do to help prevent a truly horrible situation.
Just asking, why?

Oh shit. Now I have done it. Did I really go ahead and do that? Why? WHY?

Why oh why did I let this happen. Crap. I really did.

I blogged.

This summer my 6 year old son swam in his first ever swim meet, he did a few more, amassed a small ribbon collection along the way and qualified for the section finals where he had to compete against other boys as old as 9. He ended up last, got a ribbon that said 16th place, but was so happy cause "I don't have 'this' colour!"
Last night my son hit 3/3 in his baseball game, two hits were so amazing. He caught his first ever infield pop fly (but then dropped it). He was so proud, "that was my best game ever Mommy, and my coach gave me TWO popsicles!"
Today he read these words to me without hesitation : metropolis and ventriloquist. I am personally, very impressed.

This afternoon I was on the phone with our bank representative making some important inquiries and he yells loud enough for her to hear, "MOMEEEE! I JUST HAD A POO! CAN YOU PLEASE CHECK IF MY BUM IS CLEAN?"
The kid can play ball, swim, read and *almost* wipe his own bum.
Good times!
