Caution: Children playing

My nephew playing on his scooter. I love that my sister has taken the precautions to put the sign out stating that there are children present. So many people fly through residential streets without a care in the world and they put our kids at risk. It’s wild to me, though, to think of the differences between now and back when I was a kid. My nephew has the caution sign and the safety helmet. Which is smart, don’t get me wrong. It’s just strange to think that “when I was a kid” (that’s how you know you’re getting old), no one wore helmets or had signs. Our parents didn’t know where we were and that was ok as long as we were home when the street lights came on. Not only did we not wear seat belts but we actually rode down the highway in the back of a pickup truck and we’d fight over who got to ride on the wheel hump. It’s amazing that we all survived such precarious living.
