LP has had her scooter for well over a year now – it started off as a trike but the seat gets removed to make it into a scooter. Earlier this year we took the seat off and LP and Little Man have been playing with it in the garden ever since the weather got a little nicer.
I hadn’t been paying that much attention to LP and the scooter but the other day I sat outside and watched LP play whilst Little Man was napping. It was the first time I realised that she could actually scoot on her scooter now, not just push it along or stand stationary on it – she could actually stand on it and kick herself along.
This to me was such a big sign that LP is getting older. The toddler, preschooler has nearly disappeared and in her place is a little girl with great coordination, a sense of adventure and a love of being outside.
Little Man is still at the stage of standing on the scooter and not really going anywhere but I am sure by watching his sister it won’t be long before he’s scooting around too. At least we now know that we can take the scooter out with us and LP will actually be able to use it!
