I live in a world of 'First' at the moment. Last week it was a 'First Hair-cut' and now this week it was Alba's first time to ride a bike with no training wheels. As quick as they came off, she was quick to take it in her stride and ride away free as a bird. I recently heard a saying something along the lines of 'Once a child can ride a bike, it's like they can experience true freedom for the first time'. Think about it...No one to help hold you up, support you, do it for you, make that decision to turn left/right for you, stop you. They hold all the cards and can just ride. Ok sure if there is danger around then you're going to have to step in, BUT you get the drift... basically they are in complete control for the first time in their little world.
So as I tick another 'First' of her list, I wonder what the next one will be.....
The Water Boy
I don't remember how old I was when I learnt to ride, but I do remember the broken arm I got at age 5 when I fell off.... best I prepare myself now for any accidents (OH there's another first!! But I hope I DON'T experience that!)
HOW OLD WERE YOU, WHEN YOU LEARNT TO RIDE A BIKE?
DO YOU REMEMBER WHO TAUGHT YOU HOW TO RIDE?
Linking up with Trish from My Little Drummer Boys for Wordless Wednesday... sorry had to add some words this week :)
