Speed Racer

The fam is enjoying daylight savings time. That extra bit of daylight allows us to go for walks or to the park in the evenings. Tonight we brought along her scooter so she could use it along the way. She was really working that thing. I was amazed at how good she could maneuver and steer it and how fast she could get going while remaining in control of it. She sang "Speed Racer, go Speed Racer" as she zipped along. Then she spied another scooter in the driveway of a home we were passing. She paused with excitement and exclaimed, "Look! There's a scooter kinda like mine, but it's a little scooter for a little kid!" I sized it up. I looked at hers. I replied, "Yeah, it's for a little kid, just like yours. They are about the same size, ya know!" Daughter didn't miss a beat as she stepped back on her scooter and took off. "Yeah," she said, "but it's no match for mine!"
