“Daddy, when I grow up, I want to ride a motorcycle.”
[He’s 3 1/2…]
In our house you have to be 23 before being allowed to ride a motorcycle, so far my 3 year old is happy with this. I don’t know how long it will last.
Good luck with yours
I had a couple of Newtons. Well, more than a couple I guess. I bought a clear Newton 110 at WWDC one year, and then won a regular (black) one as a door prize that evening. Later my girlfriend and I bought two MessagePad 2ks, plus a third one as a spare.
It was pretty cool stuff.
Daddy, when I grow up, I want my blog to get slashdotted…
I read your article about programming videogames – reminds me of the sort of environment you find in any new setup – I’m feeling reassured now!
I had to wait until I’d moved out to university.
When my son was 2 1/2, he said, “I’m going to go outside and play with my chainsaw.” I still have no idea what he thought a chainsaw was, or where he heard the word.
My nephew’s 2nd birthday was today. At the birthday picnic he guided me by the hand to the parking lot where he pointed out my bike and said very firmly “Blue Voom!”. He then insisted I let him sit on it.
I hate to break it to you, but I suspect it may be instinctive and incurable. (As far as I know he’d never seen a motorcycle up close before…)
Get him a dirt bike if he wants one. I would have been diagnosed with ADHD if my dad hadn’t bought me a minibike when I was 10. I was beating up kids and starting to be a real terror – until I got that minibike. It’s hard to get into trouble as a kid when you’re exhausted from riding your motorcycle all day.
