My stubborn daughter has refused to ride her bike for about a year. She insisted that the training wheels be taken off because training wheels are for babies but then but refused to even attempt to ride her bike saying she would ride her bike when she was 6. Well she has been 6 for over a month now and finally today she conceded that it might be worth trying to ride her bike.
It was a beautiful sunny day so we ventured over to the park. I was anticipating many tears, lots of attempts at keeping my cool and losing my patience and eventually defeat and us both going home annoyed. I am happy to report that the attempt was a success – I did nothing other than stand by and cheer. She simply got on the bike, scooted along a little and off she rode!
Go girl-child, I am so proud of you! Head over here for other weekly winners.
