The weather in Florida is usually pretty fabulous in January and Febuary, so we have been spending most afternoons riding bikes and scooters in the driveway. On one of these occasions not too long ago, Emma Jane decided she was done with training wheels and ready to give the two-wheeler a try.
It took her about 20 minutes to get the hang of it.
She was not at all pleased with that amount of time. She seemed to think 20 seconds should have been an adequate learning curve and had more than one overly dramatic meltdown about her lack of two-wheeling perfection during that 20 minutes! It was really hard to not roll my eyes at her.
This is a short video of her riding the bike.
It is the only one I got that is drama free and I love that John is being her cheerleader! He was much more sympathetic to her frustrations than mommy!
She has been a bike riding maniac since then! And by maniac, I mean she is seriously never getting a driver's license! Her current favorite trick is to pedal as fast as she possibly can and then put her feet up on the handle bars! There is no video of that because I just can't watch!
