We have yet to really get into the whole bicycle thing for the kids. We've acquired some different stuff over the years--a tricycle, a plastic motorcycle, and then the bike in the above picture. We got it used from someone--"Hot Wheels" with training wheels. At some point Yosef took a real liking to it.
Recently it's been, uh, falling apart. A couple of weeks ago in fact a friend and I were cracking up because truly, it had all this stuff coming off of it. One of the training wheels (which is visible in this picture) is totally bent upward (so non-functional), the foam is coming out of the seat, and there was this huge decorative thing that was coming off the front, that actually resembled jagged metal (now it's completely off.)
And today was the day when the FUNCTIONAL training wheel decided to come off. But that didn't stop Yosef. Nope, instead he taught himself--in about ten minutes--how to ride a two-wheeled bike. No joke. I'm so proud of my boy!!! (And yeah that's him pedaling on our deck with no training wheels.)
Now we're definitely in the market for some bikes and helmets. Oh how I love Craigslist!!!
(Yes I just posted a photo. Which means I've uploaded a bunch. So now I can actually maybe get back to blogging.)
