OK, my kids don’t lose teeth until they almost are 8, and apparently cannot ride a 2 wheeler without training wheels until that age as well. Coincidence??
With The Bee, I remember very clearly the day when she was 5 years old that she came up to us and said, “I don’t want to learn how to ride a bike. I retire“. And she did.
Until one day when she was 8, she took out her bike (we had taken off the training wheels in hopes that one day she might want to try it again), went outside, and taught herself how to ride it in an afternoon. All on her own.
Jim and I just looked at each other. We had never seen such will before. First to decide she would “retire” at 5 and stick to it until three years later when she decided she was ready. And she was.
Our second child, we thought, would be different. She is, slightly. She has never declared that she never wanted to ride again. But she wouldn’t even try riding her bike without training wheels, until now.
Do your kids ride bikes? What age did they start?
