What is it with boys & wheels?

I took Noah over to the school to watch the last half of Dante's soccer practice. Of course most kids live nearby so a lot of them just ride their bikes over to the school field. We get to the school playground and there are bikes everywhere. And this is the first time he hasn't made me chase him out into the parking lot or follow him all over the too-big playground. No, tonight he was far too interested in the bikes. He circled round & round one, touching the frame, spinning the pedals, jabbering away passionately the entire time.
I thought, so is this love of any kind of wheeled transportation just born into boys?

  1. I think it's a possibility that it's born into boys, but shiny metal machines also fascinate him, so maybe it's simply that.

  2. As long as he doesn't pass Escalades and say "They're spinning, Mommy. They're spinning!" than you're safe.
