Kiddo took his first "real" bike ride on Tuesday last week. We didn't have a helmet for him yet but I thought he'd be going slow enough that I could stick nearby and catch him. He did amazing! He was peddling fine and I was really happy. I did realize, with how well he did, that we needed to get a helmet asap. Problem was that his head is to big for the 5 year old sizes, but just a bit to small for the next size up (8 year olds size) so we bought him a super adjustable 8 year old style with red flames and vents. He likes it! This afternoon I will try to get him out to bike again, he needs to practice and gain leg strength and stamina. (btw I do know he wasn't wearing his glasses, I don't know HOW we ended up forgetting them on the way out the door but I didn't notice till we were down the stairs... since I didn't trust him not to kill himself while I ran back up, and I didn't want to lug him and the bike back up and down, and we were only going to be out for 30 minutes... I figured I'd keep an extra close eye on him and hopefully nothing bad would happen).
