Dropping the Kids Off
When Esther & Josiah were young, I would often either circle
the house or front yard on the bike, waving goodbye, or
sometimes drive one or both of them around the yard. When
each of them was about 2, I managaed to drop the
Interceptor while carrying the current
two year old, at 1 or 2 MPH in the yard when I hit wet leaves.
Sharon would examine our child with a microscope; I could tell
they were OK so I would be trying to get Sharon to help me stand
the bike up (both times it fell top-side downhill). This caused
a bit of tension at the time, but we got over it, and it
doesn't seem to have scarred the kids... Or the bike. 8^)
Moral: Always put the child in an ejection seat.
