I got a new bike today!!! It’s pretty awesome and I’m pretty awesome riding it! It’s a blue Strider bike with a purple bell. It’s a starter bike that looks just like a regular bike but has no pedals. It will help me learn to balance and I won’t ever need training wheels – pretty cool, huh?! I’ll go right from this bike to a real bike.I got to practice riding my new bike with Daddy while Mummy made dinner. Check me out:
and more riding (and using chalk…on Mummy’s car!):
Mummy and Daddy were planning to wait until the baby was born to get me this bike, kind of as a present from my little brother (who will use it when I grow out of it), but decided the weather was just too nice to wait. We went to the bike store after school so I could ride all weekend! I was great in the store and tried out my bike, picked out my bell and played with the train table they had. When it was time to go I started to throw a fit when the nice lady who helped us (who also has two sons, but much older) came over with some stickers and said I could have one once we were outside. I immediately stopped crying (and Mummy thanked her sooooooo much!!) and happily went outside and picked out a yellow happy face sticker.
I’m looking forward to lots of riding in my future!! I already run fast and Mummy says swimming lessons are next. Triathlon, here I come!
