    Unimportant, but I need to vent.

    My babies (6, 8 & 10yrs old) are with me for the week. 10yr old girl came with nothing but flip-flops. Phoned her mother Sun (Father's day) asking for proper shoes since she wanted a ride. Mother refused, because girlfriend was going to drive my boys... unapproved babysitter. My brother & sister stepped up, drove my boys, and I had to make an extra stop to buy my girl some proper shoes. Kids spent the day with me & girlfriend anyway, got rides like they wanted, but I had to buy shoes and brother & sister were inconvenienced. Irritating. Children begged for another ride today, and I am going to inconvenience my mother tomorrow night to provide them one. None of you have ever enjoyed a motorcycle more than this girl:



    At 10, she is putting her weight on her legs crossing RR tracks, and I have not yet taught her that. All in all, best Father's day I have had, despite all the bullshit.



    Thank you. Rant over.

    Shouldn't sweat it much . Head out to Walmart or something and pick her up a pair of boots she can keep at your place . Consider it the subtle middle finger to the refusing mom .
    If they call a sheep a ram.
    And a donkey an ass.
    Why do they call a ram in the ass a goose?

    look on the bright side: your kids wanna spend time with you doing the stuff you like to do, and your family has your back.

    i say this from being on the other end of this as a kid: dont give up regardless of the hoops that baby mama makes you jump for your kids. they need their dad around--not that you need any instruction, you seem to be doing just fine.

    ps. i didnt know anyone still lived in michigan. pls explain.

    Not every Dad would go to the effort man, kudos.
    Great spirits have always found violent opposition from mediocrities. The latter cannot understand it when a man does not thoughtlessly submit to hereditary prejudices, but honestly and courageously uses his intelligence and fulfills the duty to express the results of his thought in clear form.

    Stupid. MI has no age limit for passengers at all, which is good... 8 & 10yr olds LOVE the bikes. A couple years ago someone phoned the police on me, because my then 4yr old son was riding with me. Cop said he was good, as long as he could reach the pegs & had a proper helmet. There's no shortage of idiots out there doing whatever they can to take all the enjoyment out of life.


    As for my Weekend situation... Thanks for the comments. We did buy her some shoes, and on her own, girl decided she should keep them here - just in case. Nice to know she's paying attention to who's doing what. She & I & my son are looking forward to another short ride this evening, thanks to a little help from my Mom.
