My Best Friend (my boy)

by CJ Maleney   Mar 14, 2017

5 years old .
"dad is that back seat for me"
Yes but when you big enough
For the foot pegs you can not reach

6 years old.
" is that back still for me"
You know it is my son
But your too small for the seat

7 years old
"dad I totally love your new beast"
It is rather awesome
But you have not grown enough
So you still can't claim that seat

8 years old,
"oh my god are you OK"
I'm OK, but I killed the bike
One loving little tyke
That craved more for the bike.

9 years old.
"How's the new bike going dad"?
It's actually pretty neat
It would appear that you have grown son
It's time to take your seat

So I bought the kit and helmet
And I looked for a good scene
Tickets bought, band checked out
What a time for him and me
