One of the many wonderful things about being a parent is that perfect excuse to be a big child again. Whether it’s a bumpy ride on the seesaw at the local park, or an afternoon in the garden kicking a football about – I just love channeling my inner 7-year-old and having fun with the boys.
Archie was thrilled he’d finally get to have one of the ‘original’ Micro Scooters he’s been eyeing up for years, as well as a lovely new outfit to get him ready for autumn.
Just a few days later, our delivery arrived. Not only two brand new folding Micro Scooters, but also a lovely new autumn outfit for each of us. I have a real thing for the timeless elegance of stripes and to my delight received a pair of striped wellies and a Breton top, not forgetting the comfiest and flattering navy skinny jeans and a bright red raincoat.
We couldn’t think of a better place to put the scooters to the test than the long and winding promenade at Portobello Beach. So that evening, while Grandma watched over little brother Ollie, Archie and I set off for an evening adventure in the windy late August sunset.
The great thing about a scooter is that it’s incredibly easy to get the hang of. Despite not riding a scooter since I was 8 years old, I felt as confident as Archie and we picked up quite a speed.
It felt so good to feel the wind in my hair after a day at work and Archie yelled and squealed the entire time, he absolutely loved it!
Thank you Joules and Micro Scooters for giving me the perfect excuse to be a big kid again and for making Archie so incredibly happy with that!
