Life is a driveway.....
Today we got Peanut his first bicycle! He is 3.5 years old and up until now always rode on his tricycle or a push car/Cozy Coupe. But since the weather has gotten nicer, since we have a giant driveway...we figured it was time. In all honesty, I'm gonna give him about a week then next weekend I intend on taking off ALL of the boys' training wheels and teaching all 3 at once how to ride without them.
Bubba just turned 6 and still uses training wheels. It took him a long time to figure out that he had to steer and pedal at the same time. Pooks has had his bike for a year now and goes so fast but doesn't have the confidence. Every time we talk about taking the training wheels off, he insists that we leave them on. Well Peanut ''gets'' it. He pushes back on the brakes a little too often but overall, he gets steering while pedaling. So I figure that if we're gonna do it, might as well do it all at once. Wish us luck! We've been spending afternoons outside playing so hopefully by the weekend they'll all be ready :)
