Scootering - This is for you, Dad!

When Scott left for his deployment, Cayden could barely ride his scooter. Now, a month later, Cayden can really get around on it! I love watching him! Of the three or four kids in our neighborhood that sometimes play with him and ride scooters with him, he is the only one who wears a helmet. I can proudly say that I don't have to remind him of putting it on, he just knows he has to do it. You might think that I'm being overprotective of him with this helmet (he has to wear it when he rides anything, even his tricycle). But just tonight I heard a story from one of our babysitters that tells me that it's okay in my wanting him to wear it. She was riding her bike (when she was younger), hit the curb, fell and cracked her helmet on the fall. To me, that is all I need to make sure Cayden always wears his helmet.
