Learning to Fly: Pink Princess Edition

The Bean rode on her own this afternoon. Her mom has the guts to let go without too much practice. I'm not sure if she has more faith in our kids or if she has a more sadistic maternal instinct than most. Regardless, her courage at their expense has gotten both of our kids on two wheels.

Bean is still a little ways away from taking off and stopping all on her own, and she rides only on the downhills, but she's taken the first big step.

  1. So cool! Tell her I think she's just awesome!

    Also, it looks like her seat may need to be raised.

  2. Soon. We've kept it low so she could reach the ground.

  3. I think Bean's Mom learned to ride on the down hill, behind a school at a place called Symirna.

  5. Actually the last comment was from me,just forgot to sign out of Toms account! With Lily knowing how to ride now,things are going to be a lot easier on the adults that have to carry her around on their backs or bikes...Hooray for Lily!

  6. I learned how to ride a bike when we lived in a duplex that had a hill for a driveway and we parked at the bottom. Terry took my training wheels off and told me to just go. He never told me to stop before I hit Mom's Escort.

  7. Yeah, Terry taught me how to ride by sending me down Mamaw and Papaw's yard into Hatton Creek Road.

    Of course that was in like '80 or '81 when there was far less traffic.
