“WHAT is this thing on my head?!?”

Olivia was not impressed with the idea of a helmet on her head. And yes – that was the “toddler” size, the smallest one at the store. (No – she isn’t riding a bike yet. But when our little ones are on toddler ride on toys outside, we make sure their sweet heads are protected.)

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

ADORABLE! I love the pics I have of Ali in her helmet also. Pretty much anything makes a toddler look cute!


2 Jenny December 3, 2008 at 1:01 am

How cute is that??!! I love this photo.


3 Kimberly/Mom in the City December 3, 2008 at 1:04 am

That’s an adorable (big, but adorable) helmet!

My WW this week is “Our Family’s Favorite Christmas Ornaments” (each family members’ pick).

7 carrie-the gremlin wrangler December 3, 2008 at 1:48 am

yeah, she looks a little weirded out!


8 jenn3 December 3, 2008 at 2:36 am

Haha. Cute. I couldn’t find anything smaller than a helmet for a five year old when I looked. I’ll have to check more stores.


9 Alicia December 3, 2008 at 2:43 am

Love it!


10 Munchkins and Music December 3, 2008 at 3:36 am

I think all kids this age hate things on their heads. I can’t get my kid to wear a hat for anything!


11 TJ Hirst December 3, 2008 at 6:56 am

At least she looks like she is enjoying it!


12 katef December 3, 2008 at 7:13 am

he he he too cute! Even my five year olds’ helmets looks way to enormous on their heads, but better to be safe and look silly!


13 BlapherMJ December 3, 2008 at 7:36 am

Boy is that photo a keeper! :-)


14 Sheila December 3, 2008 at 8:36 am

Aw, that smile is priceless!


15 Melissa, Multitasking Mama December 3, 2008 at 8:56 am

Good to learn safety that young and enjoy it!!


16 babyrocasmama December 3, 2008 at 9:01 am

My daughter did the same thing when she got hers for her birthday this pat March.

Now I can’t get the helmet, elbow & knee pads or the tutu off of her!!


17 Kristen of La Dolce Vita December 3, 2008 at 9:30 am

so cute but she will grow to love it, it is considered cool by older kids.


18 Felicia December 3, 2008 at 9:44 am

May I suggest the Giro Helmet. We had to order it ($14.94 from nashbar.com) but it is adjustable and Graham doesn’t mind it! We take him on rides on our bikes…we have a child seat of course.. and that’s what works for us!


19 Jen E December 3, 2008 at 9:50 am

She looks so cute!


20 Debbi/Aspiemom December 3, 2008 at 9:51 am

What a cutie! I thought maybe she’d fallen off a bike.


21 Shasta December 3, 2008 at 9:57 am

Aww, it might be too big, but she looks adorable in it!


22 Carrie Moore December 3, 2008 at 10:02 am

Adorable! I am loving Wordless Wednesday.


23 Jodilightful! December 3, 2008 at 10:15 am

What a cutie! Safety first :)


24 Lynn December 3, 2008 at 10:25 am

But that is a very, very cute helmet! I love it!


25 Jen December 3, 2008 at 10:27 am

What a cutie! =)


26 Abby December 3, 2008 at 10:42 am

That is a great pic. She doesn’t look angry about it!


27 Sara December 3, 2008 at 10:42 am

Awe, she looks excited with that fancy helmet! :)


28 Bodhi. Baby. December 3, 2008 at 10:49 am

What a great smile.


29 killlashandra December 3, 2008 at 11:04 am

What a cutie! I love all the pink too. She looks like she’s have a grand time. :)


30 mommy-momo December 3, 2008 at 11:10 am

haha! classic!


31 Mrsbear December 3, 2008 at 11:30 am

I thought she was smiling at first, but nope, that’s definitely discomfort. Happy Wednesday.


32 Lynne December 3, 2008 at 11:41 am

How cute, all in pink!

It seems really late in the year, but I just had to share the fact that the leaves here in N. Texas have FINALLY changed color! It’s fall!


33 Gattina December 3, 2008 at 11:59 am

A future stuntman (woman), lol ?


34 tonya December 3, 2008 at 12:31 pm

35 Jeanette December 3, 2008 at 12:41 pm

36 ali December 3, 2008 at 12:42 pm

I can’t tell if she’s laughing or crying! Cute pic!


37 Leslie December 3, 2008 at 2:05 pm

I think that helmet looks great on her!! Safety first!!


38 SarahHub December 3, 2008 at 4:42 pm

That is the cutest helmet I have ever seen! And her sweet smile makes the picture!


39 Childlife December 3, 2008 at 4:48 pm

What a cutie! That grin gets more adorable by the week!

We had a Christmas Train Wreck in our nativity scene this morning…


40 Kim December 3, 2008 at 5:22 pm

sooo cute!! Look at her state of confusion.. love it!! Happy WW!!


41 Kalisha (Mommy Lounge) December 3, 2008 at 5:25 pm

She is really wearing that helmet! At least she is enjoying it though–Very cute!


42 The Gang's All Here! December 3, 2008 at 5:48 pm

Adorable. The expression on her face is priceless.

We’re all about re-purposing common every day household objects at our blog today! Come see.


43 Shelly December 3, 2008 at 5:59 pm

What an expression! Thanks for hosting Wordless Wednesday!


44 Amy December 3, 2008 at 6:59 pm

LOL…Safety’s a tad over-rated, huh?


45 Misty December 3, 2008 at 8:06 pm

SO adorable!


46 Colleen December 3, 2008 at 10:17 pm

Hopefully she’ll get used to the helmet if she has to wear it often enough. Zoe insists on wearing hers whenever she rides on anything now. She just likes it.


47 Mandy December 3, 2008 at 11:47 pm

She looks pretty excited about that ride!


48 Petula December 3, 2008 at 11:58 pm

Beautiful shot! I can’t wait to see her on her first bike. :D


49 Desiree - Mother Musings December 4, 2008 at 12:33 am

Happy Wordless Wednesday!

What a great photo! She looks like she’s falling over from the weight of that helmet though! :)

Thanks for sharing,


50 kristen December 4, 2008 at 6:18 am

My Ella is 18 months old in a few days, and we too always make sure she has on a helmet. In fact, if we were to forget, she would surely remind us. She LOVES to wear it! One day she wore it around the house for an hour or two. :)

Cute picture of your little sweetie!


51 Sheila Capell December 5, 2008 at 1:41 am

What a cute little chickadee!


52 casual friday everyday December 5, 2008 at 8:12 pm

Surprised she tolerated it! My 2 year old would have no such thing on his head. hee

And can I say that I can’t believe how fast your little girls are growing up?!
