Today was a big day in our family. We’ve been telling Zachary for a few weeks that it’s time to learn to ride a bike without using training wheels. He has been hesitant, mostly because he was afraid he was going to end up getting hurt. Considering how often he injures himself, I suppose I can’t really blame him for that worry.
We decided that today was the day, and weren’t going to take no for an answer. He didn’t protest, exactly, but he did think for a minute and then say “But Mommy! You don’t want me to lose my teeth, do you?!” I laughed and assured him that we would make sure he didn’t end up losing any teeth in the process. I hoped I wasn’t lying through my teeth (pun totally intended).
