When you see an icon like this, how can you control yourself? The answer is simple: you can't.
Ryan was out alone. He told himself this was perfectly normal. There was no way Bristol could possibly forget him just because he was away for a few hours. Even a normal baby would still recognize her Daddy, and a baby as clearly advanced as Bristol? No way. No way she'd forget.
Even still, Ryan wanted to be sure he had something memorable when he made it home.
The tag on the Radio Flyer Classic Red Dual Deck Trike said "Recommended Ages: 2-5 Years." Ryan knew those tags meant business. But he couldn't help but think: what if this trike was there as an incentive? What if his little girl woke up every morning to look at the classic-style chrome handlebars and bell? Certainly, certainly she'd rush toward that magic "Recommended Ages: 2-5 Years" as quickly and intelligently as possible!
And imagine young 2-5 year old Bristol zipping around their future driveway on her Radio Flyer Classic Red Dual Deck Trike! She'd be all smiles, pedaling so hard. She'd never know it was the extra stability keeping her balanced. Each year, she'd say "Dad! Dad! This seat is too small!" and Ryan would put on his work corduroys and work the adjustable seat, and then she'd be off and pedaling again.
Naturally, when Ryan brought the Radio Flyer Classic Red Dual Deck Trike into the house, Jessica didn't say a thing. They had already agreed not to contradict each other in front of the child. A united front, that's what they were, equal partners insuring proper maturation. But later, when Bristol was fast asleep and their bedroom door was closed, she made it very clear: the Radio Flyer Classic Red Dual Deck Trike was going to wait until Bristol reached the "Recommended Ages: 2-5 Years" range on Ryan's side of the closet. And, in future, any purchases were going to be a joint decision.
