So J has never really ridden his bicycle. He has not ridden his bicycle with training wheels because he refused to wear his helmet. I explained to him he can not ride his bike without his helmet. So he chose not to ride the bike.
This has been going on for at least a year.
This weekend he walked into the living room with helmet in hand and said he was ready.
I almost fell off the couch and dropped L.
I said to him, "Great, let's go." Grabbed Henry and L's tricycle and we went on a very long walk/bike ride/run.
On our way back J said that when he turns 5 (which is in two weeks) he would like to take the training wheels off his bike.
