Skay Boder!



Tonight I had to go to the pharmacy to get Bosco some more insulin. In line, I was behind a pretty woman and her toddler son, who sat backwards in the cart, facing me.

He looked at me for a moment, and then got this gimormous smile across his face. He pointed and said, "hemmet! hemmet!" The woman turned around, looked at me, smiled, and said to him, "That's right! She's wearing a helmet!" He was so excited about my helmet. It was adorable.

Then, bouncing in his seat, he crows, "Skay boder!!!!" His mom goes, "Skateboarder? I think she's probably on a bike, honey." I fessed up that I was.





That little boy was soooo excited about it. Fireblossom, sk8ter chick? Hmm, maybe not, but I walked away grinning.

It's neat how open and honest little children are. It's always fun to watch our Tyler interact with a brand new world, and how friendly people are when they pass this perfect post-nuclear family of mine.

I love how kids can get so excited over little things. Why do we lose that? Wish I could bottle it and bathe and in it!

Biker girl...Sk8ter chick...What next?

How about Spirit Emanicipator? You're living this marvelous life of yours, pedaling around and now, you've moved onto boarding, yet those spirits of yours never get a scrap of fun!

Spirits unite!
