Scooting is Serious

My youngest child is athletically gifted. I know he's only three - and we don't put any pressure on him to any do of this - but the kid can throw a ball, swing a bat, swing a golf club, dribble a basketball, and dribble a soccer ball like nobody's business. My husband and I frequently see him do something and then just look at each other in silent amazement.

Enter the Razor scooter.

The three-year-olds received darling three-wheeled, beginner scooters for their birthday in January. They spent all winter whizzing around the house in them. It was fun.

Come spring, we moved the three-wheelers outside. But H abandoned his quickly in favor of his older siblings' two-wheeled Razors. Way cooler, I guess.

After about a month of dedication, this kid can now balance perfectly on the two-wheeled scooter.

He is a force to be reckoned with.


  1. what fun to watch him learn things that most kids can't do for a few more years - my daughter was "afraid" of the scooter til she was five years old! I don't usually do this but my website sells a bicycle for 1 - 5 year olds called a Strider Running Bike which teaches little guys to ride without ever going to training wheels - your guy would love it....check it out (http://www.mykidsactive.com). I grew up playing every sport available to me and have been hoping my daughter would be an athlete - the other day she said to me, "Mom I just can't stop thinking about batting the ball"....music to my ears.

  2. congratulation for having athletic boys my kids are hyper but i dont know if they are athletic.. they dont play any sports so probably not athletic. lol
