The child of a cyclist... (cute but short story)Spinchick

Took my daughter (3 1/2) pumpkin picking today. We came home and carved a pretty cool looking Jack-O-Lantern out of it. When we were done, I set it on the front porch and we stepped back to admire our work. I asked her if she thought it needed anything. Her reply, "I think it would look better with my new bike helmet on top." She will be known as Spinkid from now on.

So, is it wearing the helmet?

You sure she was just not trying to get out of wearing the helmet? Little girls can be pretty tricky.

I think you are ready for the child back tandem.

Whatever you do, though, don't let her see this website. :-)

So, how short is the Spinkid anyway? nmMB1

When my youngest daughter was about 2 and recently pottie trained, we went to a resturant & of course she had to go. So I leave her Older Brother Dennis (her hero) and take her to the Men's John. I shuffle her into a stall quickly (so she doesn't notice the guys at the urinals) and she proceeds to pull her pants down & stand up facing the toilet.
"What are you doing Chris?"
"I'm gonna stand up and go."
"Chris, I don't think you can do that"
Hands go on hips, she looks up at me and announces:
"IF DENNIS CAN DO IT, I CAN DO IT!!!"
Entire bathroom laughs out loud.

Gotta love small kids.

to pull haiku jr. (via tandem) up those chattanooga mountains in may of some year in the next 10 or 15. he's only 18 months now, but sooner or later he'll be into it, at least for a minute.

mrs. haiku says i'm like a football dad, planning for his son to be a linebacker or right tackle when he's old enough to wear the armor...like my dad was with me. nope, i say, i only hope he's a mean haiku poet by the time he's twelve. otherwise, i'll be happy so long as he's happy, be it riding a bike or playing backgammon or pursuing whatever it is that drives him.

simple explanation is that i don't have anyone to ride tandem with over some hills. :-)
