Helmet Acceptance

I got Ari a scooter for his 2nd birthday. He loved it immediately, but HATED the helmet. I told him if he wanted to ride the scooter he had to wear the helmet. He was unconvinced. He screamed each time Wil and I put the helmet on him. Finally after both Wil and I took turns wearing the helmet and talking about how awesome it was, he agreed to don it. So we went out for a ride.

After scooting around the neighborhood, he was pretty thirsty. So we stopped for a carrot apple ginger juice.

He's still getting used to the scooter, but overall I think it's a success. If you're interested in checking it out for your kid, it's called a Micro Mini. For more information on this particular scooter, click here.

  1. That, my friend, is a freaking cool scooter! If only I were tiny, if only. Ari should also thank you guys for getting him a cool skateboarder helmet instead of a loserish bicycle helmet!

  2. HA HA HA! That's true!! It is a pretty awesome helmet. Thanks lady! I know!! I want to ride that damn scooter myself! They make adult versions!

  3. That helmet is SO SWEET!

    P.S. It's Sarcastica!!! I've re-invented myself, so to speak! Go check out my new site!

  4. He is a force of nature, that boy. But then so are you guys. Congrats on your success in getting Ari to wear a helmet.
