One Kid, Two Wheels

My youngest is so stubborn. Whenever there is an opportunity for her to be in control - no matter how small the matter - she takes it and runs with it.

During swimming lessons she flatly refuses to put her face in the water with her instructor. But will happily do it for us 5 minutes after lessons have ended. Grrr...

Bike riding? She loved it with her training wheels. As soon as they came off last summer...she refused to get back on and even attempt it.

There are benefits to kids getting older. Their drive to keep up with the other kids is greater than their determination to rebel.

And that is why - after just a few sunny days of practicing - we have liftoff...

The world is her oyster now...what have we done?
