So cute! It's funny how hand-me-downs don't actually occur to you until the second child is a boy. We had a few of those pink toys for Jonathan as well.

Hahaha, I always had hand-me-downs, too. Most of mine were clothes - and up until a certain age I not only got my sisters and my cousins old clothes, I even got my brother's clothes. I do specifically remember riding my brothers Dukes of Hazzard Big Wheel. Then I got a Cabbage Patch Big Wheel for my birthday and I was much happier!

I hope it doesn't say "Pretty Little Princess" like one of our girls bikes from the past. There's just something not quite right with the "pink" :)

He still looks studly on it though. He's man enough to pull it off...kinda like Rod in those infamous polka dot shorts :-)

Michelle I always tell Tim that real men wear pink with confidnece :} just think of the training he is already getting at such a young age :}

Hilarious! Yet he still looks "all boy" despite the pink. :)

Oh my goodness Michelle...I was the crazy intern w/ the portable stove-top range, hot pot, microwave, pots and pans and of course a coffee maker and espresso maker. :) My room was known as "the home". We even had a couch. I'm guessing I never practiced my domestic skills on you because of our 18 hour summer days or because I was babysitting Skylar while you were busy at work. We had a full year didn't we!? Those were the days. :)

Have you considered spray paint?

I remember having an old, rusty red bike as a child. I kept asking for a new (green) bike and my mom said we didn't have money, but if I was REALLY good, maybe for Christmas I'd get a can of green spraypaint. Christmas came and sure enough, I got a can of green spray paint. I was so excited. I remember jumping up and running outside as fast as could to go make my bike "new". As I rounded the corner of the house, there was a new green bike with a HUGE bow on it. fun memories!

my little cousin (5yo) has four older sisters. he proudly showed me his "new camouflage bike" when i visited this summer - you can only imagine how that happened!! it was cute and he was really proud of it!! there's an idea for ya - a few cans of spray paint should do the trick!

You and Rich are raising a very secure little man by having him ride a pink bicycle.
