Living in Singapore, I've learned that it's pretty much required for every family to own a scooter. Well, not really, but almost every kid in Singapore has a scooter, and when the parents see how much fun they are and how easy scooters make getting from point A to point B, the parents end up getting an adult-size scooter for themselves. Our German friends at our condo bought one for their three-year-old son Marc, so naturally we decided to let Linna try it out. Marc's scooter has three wheels and a pull-rope to make it easier for the little ones to learn how to scoot. I think Linna's getting the hang of it, minus her fall at the end. Oops. Time to look into getting a scooter for Linna!
