My kids can't walk.

Before you get social services involved, let me explain.

They can walk, obviously, but prefer to run, or skip, or side step as if they are in training for something like the 'fastest escape from Mum' competition.

Catch me if you can!

The school run is exactly that - a race to the bottom of our hill, or the next lamppost, or the road we have to cross. It is always a competition and as the rules are set by the Big One, he naturally wins. Every time.
The Princess is not the fastest on her feet but is getting stronger and quicker and with an imposed head start can actually put up a good fight. The Wee One plays along, fully aware that one day his time will come.

Me? I'm going to get a scooter so I can keep up. I do walking but I don't do running.

Joining in with The Gallery and the theme Walk.



  1. *puts phone down*...can so relate to this! the eldest is ALWAYS making up the rules as he goes along just so that he can win!

  2. This is just like my son - why walk when you can run, skip, hop, jump...everything but! :)

  3. Wow, your kids are energetic! Fab photo

  4. Great photo. I love the shadow capture.

  5. I always said my daughter never learnt to walk. She went from unmovable lump to running and didn't stop until she grew t teen gene!

  6. Fab picture - and I think I'm going to need to invest in a scooter one day too! :o).

  7. Oh please can we pimp a scooter for you - pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeease?


Oooh, I do like a good comment :-)
