It happened. Of course it did. We're not good about putting away our outside toys. Bikes n such. I'm not used to driving the truck. Do you see where I'm going with this??
I was backing the truck out last Saturday and I heard a really loud crunch, scraping sound. What in the world was THAT?!, I said to myself and climbed out to see what I'd run over. Sure enough. Hannah's tricycle. Smashed.
I almost cried I felt so terrible. But fortunately the kids were up by the house and didn't see what had happened. Kevin quickly threw the tricycle behind the garage and I left as though nothing had happened.
I was on my way to Omaha, so I just made mental note to myself, Well, I'll guess I'll get Hannah a new bike while I'm out then!
We had a talk about what happened and how we really need to put our things away. I told Hannah how sorry I was and then we presented her with this...
Because it's nearing the end of the play-outside season for this year and Hannah's getting so big already, we went ahead and upgraded her to a big bike. She really does quite well with it. She's a happy girl. And now we remember to put our play things away at the end of the day. Live and learn. There's no better way.
