Learning to Ride Your Bike

Dear Little Bird.
You learned to ride your bike in three short lessons. And your momma would like to take credit thank-you-very-much. First we practiced balancing on your bike at the high-school track. Then we balanced some more on a slight hill. Finally when I told you that you weren’t allowed to use the pedals, you gave me a look that said, “Seriously, mom?” and you took off pedaling. I learned a little something about you that day. All you need is a challenge and a hill. Awesome. Just awesome.
Oh, and the fact that you turned your couple tumbles into yoga stretches? Brilliant.
