|Notice the look of terror on her face.|
Well, enough is enough. We have 3 kids to get off of training wheels, and since hers got bent out of shape anyway, she gets to be the first.
Cory, who taught himself how to ride a bike, thinks everyone should be able to do it that way. After all, it worked for T., who took off his own training wheels one morning about 2 years ago.
After the first afternoon, it has been my job to jog along with her. She will only go if I promise not to let go. Still, practice makes perfect. She is slowly getting over her fear of 2-wheeling it. She has learned how to mount her bike and start the peddles going, and finally realized she can tip-toe along the pavement while in her seat.
I'm hoping it only takes a couple more practice sessions before she's on her own . . . this time for good.
