Driving Skilz

November11-21, originally uploaded by katymac79.

Every kid has skills either based on talent or environment and Niamh has made us proud on many occasions with her abilities. One of those abilities is NOT driving.  I don’t know if it is access to something drivable, or, just some gross coordination issues but her BFF could make a ride on toy perform like a grand prix sports car before he could walk and Niamh at 3.5 still aims at walls…

This picture is double funny because notice who is steering here…. Connor (3m younger then Niamh) did a great job driving around and Niamh was a model passenger and technically, who wouldn’t want a passenger that can steer for a while when you get distracted by a toy? It is just good co pilot manners…

In comparison, Zoe, who is a different kid then Niamh we already concede, took one look at the kiddie atv, jumped on, and started driving.  She was pointed toward freedom so I don’t know how her steering would be but she had the confidence of a pro and I know for sure they don’t have these at daycare for her to be covertly practicing on. She did loose interest in favor of the wagon so I don’t know how well she would have done if there were an obstacle in her way. I do think she is more inclined toward wheels then her sister since she can be distracted from a tantrum by offering to play cars, and, any wheeled thing she sees she attempts to get onto (including her cousins 5x too big bike).

My nephews all seem to do very well with the driving toys, good driving skills, good situational awareness and who knows if it is nature or nurture but they have it down. Hopefully by 16 or so Niamh figures out how to avoid hazards….
