So when I was teaching Liam to ride his bike, I told him a story about how it took me months to learn to ride a two-wheeler bike. He thought that was pretty cool he had beat my 5 year old self by such a measure of time.
I called my mom the other night to see what the real story was. She said I rode my bike to kindergarten each day with the training wheels on. I had indeed taken a few months to figure out the whole balance thing. (And isn't it funny how a little tiny kid could ride a bike to school alone with no thought at all? I wouldn't even think to let Liam ride off by himself even without training wheels. Times have changed.)
Here is a photo of my 5 year old self with a groovy banana seat bike!
