Boys. Are they more adventurous as they get older? My boys seem to have swapped and changed over the years. Boy # 1 used to be called "Captain Cautious" as he really evaluated everything before he took the chance where as #2 was crazy!! Now, #2 is more cautious and #1 is a little more game to fly down the driveway on his scooter or jump things on his bike.
Which is how this happened:
Yes. Ouch you say! You should have seen it before we cleaned it up! He fell off his bike riding to school and jumping off the grass onto the footpath. Whoopsies!
I so encourage my boys now to take calculated risks (read the calculated!!) as they need to learn sometimes what to do and what not to do!
As a mother, sometimes all I can do is put on a brave face and get out the antiseptic cream and bandages!
