From the Mouths of Babes

Busy week at work, so slow week for the blog. I promise to play catchup and post more frequently this week! This one's for the grandparents:

Last weekend the weather turned gorgeous here, so we decided to take advantage of the cooler weather and hit the trails along the Chattahoochee River. For those of you that have never been - this is one of my favorite places in the whole city. Nice wide gravel trails winding along the rushing river - plus plenty of room for the little ones to get out and run free. Plus, cyclists that are more tolerant of children on the "road" here than in other places. This weekend, we saw something new - there was a lady with one leg riding a recreational scooter/bike thing along the trail. Cade, having inherited both his father's lack of discretion and competitive nature, immediately stands up, points at the lady, and screams, "I can do that game better than that lady!". Ok Cade. Um. You can ride a scooter better than an amputee. Super.

Fortunately, the lady was well past us (with her headphones on), so she didn't hear, but I was mortified none the less. We tried to talk to Cade about how rude it was to point and shout and how lucky he was to have two legs so he could run and not have to ride a scooter. It was lost on him, though, because he was quick to comment again when she rode by (this time in a whisper) and now "scooter" has been added to his Christmas list.
