My baby girl rode a bike for the first time today. A had been very hesitant about taking the training wheels off of her bike and we did not push it. We knew she would ride when she was ready and had no reason to force the issue. So, when she wanted to go to the park and try to ride without training wheels, we went. Daddy held on and ran alongside for a minute and then let go. And off she went, like she had been riding a bike all her life! She was one very excited girl, exclaiming, "That was easy!" She rode all the way home, sans training wheels and now wants to ride her bike everyday. I love how when you wait for when they are ready, they are ready and learning is effortless.
