the boy can ride!

max got a new bike for his 5th birthday a couple of weeks ago. it came with training wheels and we've just left them on...because it's easy. he can ride fine and i don't have to worry about him falling off. well, maybe mike was feeling a little bit of dad-guilt because he hadn't taught max how to ride a bike - without training wheels - yet. and he is 5. so, the wheels came off and mike set out to teach max. it didn't take much. after one attempt, here is what we have...




needless to say, i'm a pretty proud mama!

That is awesome! Of course, I am thrilled at Max's new talent, but I'm equally as thrilled at your 'Get out of the way, Mike' comment caught on tape. In one of Mason's 'firsts' caught on tape, I actually said 'Nah, nah, your dad isn't here for this one!' So naughty, but totally me! Again, we are similar!
