Scooting with Daddy

It’s funny how Monkey has become a scooting fanatic since getting his Micro Scooter for his birthday.  Monkey scoots to school and back every day, weather permitting.  Daddy P has only seen this new-found confidence from the kitchen window.  So last Sunday it was time for Monkey to go scooting with Daddy P.  I went too, but it was lovely to watch Monkey show his Daddy just how much he loves his new scooter.

Scooting with DaddyWe decided to go scooting with Daddy P up to our local park just past school.  Monkey wanted to go on the swings (shock, horror!!).  But the park was packed.  Don’t worry Monkey, why don’t you scoot to the park on the next estate?  Oh yes!  Good idea Mummy, and he was off again down another alleyway, with Daddy P in hot pursuit.

I’ve spent a lot of time talking to Monkey about road safety.  We’ve stopped, looked and listened at road when walking to Pre-School and Nursery School for a very long time.  He is quite good at remembering, but he’s normally holding my hand too!  Now we have an independent Monkey on a scooter we are having a few issues.  His enthusiasm for speed (no idea where he gets that from!) is a bit of a concern.  I’ve had to sprint after him to grab him before he scooted out into a quiet road, and this trip involved a busy main road.  Daddy P caught up with him, and reminded him that scooter boys need to think about road safety just as much as walking boys!!

The next park was also really busy, so we headed off to the estate nature reserve for a game of pooh sticks.

Then Monkey was off again, scooting with Daddy P, whilst I hung back, enjoying the scene.  By the time we got back to the park, it was empty and Monkey could have his beloved swing time.  We still can’t convince him to try the big boy swing like he has at home.  I was glad Daddy P was there to hoist him in and out – too heavy for me these days.

Scooting with DaddyAs the sun started to get lower, it was getting decidedly chilly, so we decided to head home – off Monkey went scooting with Daddy P.

Let’s go Daddy!!!

A simple afternoon, some fresh air and a nice walk / scoot.  What more can you ask for on a Sunday in January?

  1. Great photos! Looks like your son had a wonderful time. I finally had to give in and purchase a scooter for myself to keep up with my speeding scooter rider son.

  2. Yay no rain that day! What fun and great exercise for Monkey! I’m glad he got to go on the swings and show Daddy how well he can scoot. Thanks for linking up and sharing your family fun with Country Kids.

  3. Looks fab! My boys love their micro scooters 🙂 We had the same road issue initially too, but they’re pretty good now, we make them get off to cross roads! So lovely to have a dry afternoon to show off to daddy!
