First Wheels

Children like to GO!

It seems like one day they take their first unaided steps and the next they run across the room faster than the parent.

And then our culture adds wheels.

It may be a toy with four sturdy plastic wheels that the child scoots around the house or down the sidewalk. The first ones I remember were three. Yes, three as in a red tricycle. The next generation modified the concept and called it Big Wheel. And most of us graduated to a bicycle along the way – with or without training wheels for a short time.

But in the community I called home — a few lucky kids got a pedal version of Daddy’s favorite vehicle.
