While driving to Columbia today, Parker and Grandma were talking about his birthday list when Parker mentioned wanting a skateboard. I reminded him that he needed a new bike helmet. Not to miss an opportunity to compliment her grandson, Grandma was saying what a great job he does riding his scooter and bike. Parker boasted that he could go faster on his bike but his training wheels were slowing him down. Not one to miss an opportunity to keep her children grounded, I said then Dad could take them off when we got back. Parker readily agreed. He is willing to risk arms and limbs! He is willing to risk falling! I can't take it! Slow down!
