Poptart asked for her training wheels to come off the other day. Her father and I had not considered doing this for her yet since she has never shown a great interest in her bicycle. But after asking for two days in a row, we said okay. The training wheels came off and the back-breaking work of running behind her as she tried to steady herself began.
Surprisingly she did very, very well! You can't really tell it from this picture.....it was taken the first attempt. But yesterday she was in the road riding without anyone behind her. I still help her get on and balanced and then I just give her a push. After that she's off to the races. Slow and steady.
Along with this milestone, Poptart also had her first "dance" class today (the teacher comes to our preschool and has a class there, how convenient is that?). And she goes to the dentist for the first time Monday morning!
