Now the helmet makes sense.

When the boys first starting riding their bikes, the helmets I made them wear kinda seemed like yuppie, helicopter-mom overkill.  I admit to thinking, “This is ridiculous.  They’re traveling at a snails pace. Do I really need to force the helmet issue?”

Now however, it does not seem so ridiculous.  I went out to check the mail this week and Ryan came flying down the street past me like this.  NOT traveling at a snails pace.

He’s got a pretty incredible thinker inside that noggin.  Better that it’s protected.  Even at the cost of being the nerdy kid with the helmet with the weird overprotective mom.  (Yes, my internal dialogue about my parenting choices runs deep.)
