Tyler wanted skates REALLY bad. We were gonna get him the ones that slip on over your shoes as a starter. They are under 20 bucks. He had been begging me and one day I said, "We need to go to Walmart but how about we buy skates today!?" he was SO excited!! We get there and I read the box. They only go up to a size 12 and Tyler's latest shoes are a 13. DOH! Also, max weight was 45 pounds. Not a problem for most 4 year olds. However, I do not have a normal sized 4 year old. he had weighted himself the night before we went to bed. He was 54 pounds. SIGH
he was VERY sad we couldn't get the skates. Mommy and Daddy talked it over and decided to try a scooter. He had said he wanted one of those too but it took a little convincing. we went to Target and picked one out,. I didn't really want him doing it without a helmet. Cody didn't really want him doing it without pads. We got both. So basically 80 dollars later, he had a helmet, pads and a scooter. The skates were only 18. We got suckered!
We got home and he put all his equipment on and I asked to get a picture ( I don't know if y'all know this but I like to take the occasional picture ) So the flash goes off because are house is horribly dark and he blinked.
"Tyler you blinked can I get another one?" This time he blinks on purpose. For some reason he thought I WANTED him to blink. Sigh
But third times a charm right?
"Tyler can you PLEASE keep your eyes open?"
Oh how he mocks me with those HUGE open eyes. Oh well. And here is one with Kayla trying to climb on too and Daddy attaching the bell that came with the helmet
And one more of my little/big man about to go out on the street for the first time.
The the helmet has been really popular around here. And pretty much EVERY time one of the kids puts it on by themselves, it is back wards.
She is my cool girl!
PS Before posting this I was showing Tyler. Without saying ANYTHING about him having his eyes closed in the pictures he says, "I just think the flash is really bright!" haha OPPS
