It really warmed up this weekend, like 57 and windy. But, we'll take it. We've been outdoors doing yard stuff and going for bike rides.
We got Noah a walker because he uses one during preschool and looks so proud when he can move. He seems to enjoy it. Even if he can only go backwards.
Emily wanted to feed him. I certainly wasn't going to discourage her.
Emily's friend can ride a bike without training wheels, so Emily felt that she had to try it too. We were putting off trying it because it's a pain to take off the training wheels and if it doesn't go well, have to put them right back on. Luckily, her friends Mom gave us one of their bikes that they weren't using anymore. So, we have one with training wheels and one without. She was super excited about trying to ride a two wheeler as she calls it.
She did well for her first time trying. She couldn't get her balance right. She didn't fall, but only because David was there to catch her. She was back inside after 20 minutes sucking her thumb looking half her age. I love that she wants to be grown up, but then still sucks her thumb and wants her Porky. She's a girly girl and wants her nails painted, but look at all those bruises on her legs.
Anyone have tips on how to teach a kid to ride a bike?
