This is most likely the last year I’ll be able to shuttle two kids on the Xtracycle. (sniff sniff) I don’t know what Tim has been feeding them, but the wee ones have grown. They are simply getting too dang big to shuttle around.
And now they have friends.
And it’s not just their size, it’s their energy. They’re all squirmy and excited and silly. And they laugh and joke and eat lollipops. And sometimes they bonk each other with their helmets.
I have to say, I’ll miss this era. There’s nothing quite like hauling squealing kids on a bike.
But I know my Xtracycle kid-shuttle days are coming to a close.
And the kids must ride their own bikes to soccer practice.
(I promise to keep hauling the balls and cones until they are big enough for their own cargo bikes)
