On my way back from buying bird food at Petsmart, I met Angie and her daughter Amy. Angie had picked up Amy on her bike pulling a trail-a-bike from school. Amy was wearing a nice powder blue helmet. I gave Amy a dollar and card.
Angie has four kids (just like me). She told me when her oldest got caught without his helmet, her and her husband threatened to take him off the football team.
She encourages her kids to ride their bikes to school and is out there riding too (and being a good role model by wearing her own helmet).
It was nice to meet another mom who is doing it right!
