Kids Say: Look, ma!

Cycling energetically around the living room in the afternoon, DD called out to me,

“Look, look, mummy! I can cycle with just one leg.”

I look up from reading the newspapers and observe that she has just one hand on the tricycle handle while the other hand is clutching her favourite soft toy. With one leg on the right pedal, and the other balanced precariously, not quite resting on the frame.

I decide it’s not worth freaking out over safety issues and attempt an alternative tack.

“That’s great, dear. But then, you’re not giving equal exercise on the other leg.”

“No. Look, I can also cycle with just the other leg!”

Riiiiiiiighhhhhhht. I can’t help but wonder just how far are we from here to “Look ma, no hands!”…
