I must say it’s a huge boon for me too! While it’s great to slowly saunter down the road, inspecting each and every flower, checking out worms, sitting on a bench…and then another bench, some days I really wish we could move just a touch faster. Cover a bit more ground. Well, now we can! I was actually running after that pink bike yesterday which was, well, a little more my speed. You know?
Don’t worry, we still take time to smell the flowers. And I usually end up with a pocket full that we maaaaybe should not be picking. I swear we have the “these are not picking flowers” discussion. All. The. Time.
Random stranger: Wow, what a nice bike!
Me: Say thank you.
Small child on bike: It’s PINK!
She has biffed it a few times already. Nothing major, the bike is pretty low to the ground. Also, she has a helmet. And she wears it. On her second day out on her bike I pulled a rookie-mom move – which is why she’s sans helmet in these photos. Ooops.
P.S. If you’re looking for a run bike, balance bike, strider bike (I think they go by a few names) John Henry Bikes is the place to go. We’ll be heading back there next year when she upgrades to a pedal bike.
Hey, and speaking of bikes, have you ever seen one of these bikes?
