Yesterday we went to a friend’s place for the afternoon. They have three boys and a little motorbike which the two older ones can ride by themselves. JJ was asked if he wanted to have a ride. Without even thinking he said yes. I wasn’t so sure as he’s still got trainer wheels on his pushbike but with an adult holding on to him off he went.
He loved it and one of these days I guess we’ll be visiting them and he’ll be hooning around by himself. So long as he doesn’t make a motorbike his main mode of transport. I’ve heard of too many people seriously maiming themselves in motorbike accidents and it not necessarily being their fault.
Sometimes as a parent I just have to let go a bit and now that he’s getting older it’s going to happen more and more so I’ll just have to get used to it.
