Bye Bye Wheels

This evening some good friends of ours came over , their son loves to come over and ride his bike with my kids... We were enjoying the nice evening when Olivia started into her chant " I want my binky" trying to distract her I said we should try taking your training wheels off... We had tried a few months ago at her persistence and she wasn't really ready to do it... So off she ran into the house to tell daddy to take her training wheels off... I thought well this will buy me a few minutes of peace and quiet... With in a few minutes she came out side with Matt ready for no training wheels... She got all ready and off she went .. On the first try she was riding with no training wheels...

Of course there was a few falls which really were no big deal , but she cried like it was the end of the world... In so many ways she is a prissy little girl... She can definitely hang with the big boy's though... After a few minutes of watching her riding with no training wheels I thought what a fool am I ... This is my baby and I just made her seem older.. I don't want her too grow up she's the last one I got... Her sweet little giggle and smile made me smile and realize she maybe growing up but she will always be my baby...

Matt got into the action too... I have pictures of my dad riding my bike the day I learned to ride with no training wheels they look just like this one... Here is the video I took of her ... Notice you don't here my voice because I was crying ...I know I'm a sap but I always cry for two reasons when I watch the kids do something new or something I proud of them doing ... I cry because I'm so proud of them and happy for them... And because they are breaking my heart growing up so fast... I bet my mom was crying too behind the camera the day I learned to ride with no training wheels...
