I have come to realize something about the neighborhood kids . . . they are . . . hmmm. Shall we say, ‘not up to speed’?
I LOVE my neighborhood. I picked it, in part for the idyllic scenery it could offer my children. Safe streets, tag at the bus stop, kids on bikes. Only it isn’t quite working out that way.
Half the kids can’t ride bikes! When they should have had tricycles, they had motorized Barbie and Batman cars. One of the older kids has a motorized scooter, and another has a golf cart. Want to know another thing half the kids can’t do? They can’t tie their shoes! Yup, they have Velcro and never had to learn.
When my toy train set broke, we turned it over and looked at the axels. Wooden parts are easy to identify. My kids have GeoTrax, a remote controlled system that – while it IS amazing – is difficult for even me to explain to the kids precisely how it works. This tech-high lifestyle really showed, when a window jammed in our house years ago. My then-two-year-old daughter asked if it needed new batteries. *sigh*
