Back on the Scooter

By Twotimesthefun @slcs48n1
True to her thrill-seeker nature, the blond twin was back on her scooter today.  She wanted to ride it last week, but I said she had to wait until she had her teeth fixed.  The thought of her going teeth first to the ground again was enough to give me the shakes. 
I wasn't ready to see her on the scooter, but her sister decided to help tip the scales.  They are very persistent when they beg in unison.  I finally just gave in to stop the begging.  What a great parenting coping technique, huh?
The blond twin happily took off down the block trying to do tricks on her scooter.  I walked behind her and the brunette twin silently praying neither one would fall off today.  We made it home safely this time.
I'm sure it's just the first of many times that I'll think "Mom's not ready, but she is."
