Stop Growing Up!

Remember this?

I launched into quite the stern lecture against all of those parents who force their kids to take off the training wheels before they were ready.

Guess who was ready?


















And here he is sharing the big news with Daddy.















Now see here, Mr. Noah!





I know you're proud, but would you slow down and stay a kid for a little longer PLEASE?

My daughter is 8 and we were forced to remove the training wheels. It had to be done. She, however, has abandoned her bike for the heel-toe express.

Do you know that my son (will be 5 in Sept) asked me just yesterday to take his training wheels off??

And I thought of your post from before, that I was right to wait until he is ready; then I read this post today! Must be training wheel karma or something.

He was SO ready - the way he just took right off with it... We'll see how Abby and Hannah do, if they get motivated to want theirs off now too. :)

Yay, Noah!
