Last week, I was riding home from daycare on the bike with H and R. H, who is almost five, started telling a story about her kid, Poppy Pop, and how much H, Poppy Pop, and all of H’s many kids love to travel.
“Oh,” I said, “How do you travel? Do you walk or ride bikes or …”
“Yes,” H said, “We walk a everywhere and we drive cars. But we don’t bike.”
“Oh, you never bike?”
“No, we’re a bikefree family. I write a blog about it actually, about being a bikefree family.”
Now, of course, I’m cracking up, because H is lampooning us. I didn’t know she even knew we had a blog.
“Oh yes,” she continues, “All my kids love cars. Any time they see a car, they ask to have it. Even the babies. They just love cars.”
So there you have it folks. From carfree to bikefree in just one generation. Lucky for us, she loves riding a bike too much to carry out the threat!
