Just A Few Gray Hairs

What are the things that scare you?

Me?  I can't stand watching my kids ride bikes.  I love riding.  It's been a few decades, but I've always enjoyed it.  But watching my own children???  OH HELL NO!

I was useless trying to teach them how to ride.  I was a paranoid mess and their dad had to step up and take over. 

All three are proficient riders despite my paranoia, not that I can really attest to it not having witnessed much riding.  As you can imagine, there aren't many pictures.  This one was taken as part of my nature walk a few days ago.  It abruptly ended when he started the no hands stuff.


  1. I know how you feel! Mine boys have recently come up with the bright idea of making a "ramp" and riding their bikes over it so they can get a little air. Freaks me out every time!

  2. OH HELL NO! My boys did the same thing and I had to close the curtains. I told their sister to call 911 when someone crashes because I wouldn't be watching.
