Protecting the Noggin

Today we went to the Safety Store at Legacy Emanuel Hospital to get Anthony a bike helmet!  He'll wear his helmet when he goes on rides with Mommy in his new bike seat, and also when he rides his trike outside.

The Safety Store is set up like a house to demonstrate all kinds of baby-proofing and safety gadgets. They do a very thorough job of making sure the helmet fits right.  And the helmet cost only $10, which is about half the usual price.

Waiting patiently for his turn.

 I don't think I trust you, lady.

Making sure the fit is right.

It's important that the strap is snug.

  Enough already!

  This is almost as bad as a haircut!

I'll wear it, but I won't like it.

Fortunately, he got used to it after just a few minutes.  Not only will the helmet protect his little noggin, but it also looks really cool. It has bugs on it and says things like "splat" and "squish". A little boy's dream!

Now if it will ever stop raining...


  1. We got Elise a pink one from there! Now if only they made a big enough one for Paul that had bugs on it and said Splat and Squish...

  2. That's even the same lady who helped us with Elise's helmet! Her's is pink and covered with flowers. So fun!
