The girlie is finally walking more than crawling now, but even with all her practice indoors, the rough terrain of outside is frustrating for her. Which stinks (for her) because any free moments of sunny days we have are spent outside. In comes Radio Flyer walker, an extraordinary gift back when people thought we were only having one child (HA!) that keeps on giving to each child we have.
She loves it for roaming about (even in grass) and I love it for not having to carry her everywhere.
It has found a new use recently, one that I hadn't exactly anticipated. When said girlie gets TIRED of walking, an older brother or sister plop her inside of it and takes her for a ride...
FULL THROTTLE. And when I say FULL THROTTLE, that is precisely what I mean.
Running as fast as their legs can carry them, panting along driveway, in grass, whatever, with their bouncy cargo laughing away.
I would have been petrified of going that fast as a baby, methinks. In fact, I am a wee bit petrified of watching it happen as a grown up.
Whoever came up with the name Radio Flyer hit the nail right on the head.
Because BOY, can she fly!
