A Harbinger for Things to Come?

It's probably not the number "8" that he's excited about

What brings your child joy? For ours it's motorized vehicles... the faster the better. Ronan has an undeniable attraction to cars and motorcycles, be them real or toys.

Well... at least he's happy wearing a helmet. A rare but notable victory for Mom.

When Ronan notices a motorcycle driving he always points out three key things:
  1. The wheels go around (he makes a big circular motion with his index finder extended)
  2. The noise ('brr, brr, brr'... it's the sound of a Harley. He has yet to get the pitch right for a Ducati 848 superbike, but we're working on it)
  3. The fact the rider is wearing a 'hemmet' (accompanied with Ronan patting his head)

Bad Boy Ronan- our crass little guy wagging his tongue and flipping people the bird when behind the wheel of his race car. Yes, he makes us very proud.

There's a saying: "little acorns don't fall far from the tree." Case in point here.
But, he's got the hemmet (maybe needs to grow into it a bit) and his hands are at 2 o'clock and 10 o'clock, so I guess he won't have any trouble passing his driving test. I'd suggest he wait till he's 16, though!!

I give him another few months before he's riding a bicycle WITHOUT training wheels. Maybe you should look into an early sponsorship from Monster energy drinks.
