Helmets and Motorcycles

I found Brady a little bike helmet the other day at the thrift store. Mind you he doesn't actually HAVE a bike....just that workout machine in our backyard that he insists is his Honda motorcycle. When I presented the helmet to him his eyes just lit up and he said "ohhhhhh, a motorcycle helmet. Thank you for my motorcycle helmet"....and off he went to the backyard to make believe for hours. We have a set of play keys that has exactly 3 different keys where he has had me write on each one...Honda, Nissan, and John Deere. If he goes out into the yard to play he HAS to have his keys, helmet, and cell phone and he always uses the appropriate (sp?)key for the car he is using (remember...he has his red nissan car, a John Deere "lawnmower tractor", and now his exercise machine Honda motorcycle.)
He loves his helmet so much that when we drove out to the mall the other day to take the kids to the pet store he wore his helmet in the mall so that he would be safe on one of the kid rides. It was funny in the kiddie play area too because there were all these other "normal" looking kids running around having a blast and then our cautious child in his bike helmet.

Jordan was always like that!
he had all sorts of hats for different things...still does in fact.
He had a fireman's helmet, an army helmet, a bobby hat from England,
several baseball caps, cowboy hat,
and probabaly several I can't remember. Even now, he does't go out without his hog cap or his Indiana Jones style hat. At least now he buys his own :)
I love boys!! (girls too of course :)

Ok...I'm just gonna tell you right now that one day when he is famous for something, (maybe riding a motorcycle around the world in the least amount of time!) the press WILL use his little "I'm buff, don't mess with me" picture up there! What a SERIOUS little expression with just the right sprig of hair falling Johnny Depp-ish over his tiny forehead! HILARIOUS! I love it!

I absolutely love how each kid is so different and serious about certain things. I think it's so cute how Brayden has to use his keys, mind you the right one with the appropriate vehicle.
