Motherhood Moments: March

Sian got a new bike for his birthday this year, and he’s really excited about it! He’s a bit rusty though- it’s been almost a year since he’s ridden a bike. I feel bad that his old bike was in storage for so long- and he outgrew it during that time! He’s ready to start practicing again, though, and we are trying to teach him to balance enough to ride without training wheels.

It’s been a bit of a rocky start, but I know that he’ll get the hang of it soon. He’s nothing if not determined! He got his first bike when he was three (a bit young, but we got a great deal at the thrift shop on base!) and he practiced every afternoon for about a month until he could finally get the thing moving. It took a bit longer to master steering- but he was so proud of himself that it was impossible not to smile. John was deployed at the time, so he didn’t get to be around to help Sian learn to peddle. He’s looking forward to teaching him to ride his “big boy” bike, though!
