Don’t Toronto teachers have better things to do than call me at home to tell me they are afraid that my 8 and 10 year old kids aren’t safe riding their bikes to school? Isn’t it my job to make that decision, not theirs?Add a comment

Many adults complains when it´s a rainy day, but kids just love it. I remember the rainy days, when I was growing up in Sweden, with a smile. I put on my splashpants and rubberboots and played in the puddles until it was time for dinner.

Read singing in the rain
Don’t be sad if it is raining outside; remember that rain is going to give us May flowers. I’m convinced that if it is good for the flowers and the soil it is also good for us. Recently, a magazine interviewed me about how children deal with being outside in all kinds of weather. The question reminded me that I have yet to meet a child who didn’t love puddles. I think children learn from us adults that rainy days and mud are “yucky”. Do you remember your best childhood memory? Maybe it was set in the middle of a big muddy puddle. My favorite memory was making channels and little streams out of puddles.
Like lots of baby/child gear purchases, buying a bike trailer really requires some careful thought about how you plan to use the equipment. When reading customer reviews online I often feel that much of the criticism comes from buyers who didn't really look at the features of the product they were purchasing in relation to their lifestyle/ trunk size/ upper body strength. Indeed I╒ve made the mistake myself and it seems to me that you will kick yourself in ass long and hard over an ill-considered child-related purchase.Add a comment
