Only when riding

Teresa took the kids for checkups today at the doctor. Everything’s fine, and we now know that Gabrielle’s 58 pounds, Ethan is 48, and Aidan is 30.

But the magical moment was provided courtesy of Aidan.

Dr. Stepney, our family doctor, asked him if he always wore his bike helmet. Looking rather oddly at her, he gently shook his head – no.

I wonder if she was a little puzzled – maybe even surprised. After all, it’s the law for kids to wear bike helmets here in B.C., Canada. And what mother doesn’t make her child wear his helmet when riding?

Then Aidan spoke up:

“Only when I’m riding my bike.”
