Recently Kam had been asking to have the training wheels put back on Nedy's bike so he could graduate from his tricycle to it. At a husky 3, Kam had gotten a bit big for his trike and it seemed a good time for him to move on to the real deal. Of course, Nedy loved this idea, especially since in her mind that starter bike was getting "way too small" for her. Immediately, visions of streamers began swirling in her head.
So yesterday she and I went to the bike shop where I let her pick out her new ride. (Well, within reason. I did tell her right off the bat that we wouldn't be looking at the $500 model...) Much to my delight and surprise, she skipped over the myriad of pink bikes and found a blue one. The new bike is BIG--she went from a 12" frame to a 20"--but she handled the transition with her typical grace. So while the bike looks huge, it's got nothin' on this determined 5 year old. :)
And Kamron couldn't be more proud of his new-to-him ride, though he did tell me when he gets "wid of dose twaining wheews" he plans to "get a weaaaaallly big bike bigguh even den Nedy's." Good times. :)
