Teaching my children to question authority, except mine.

Big Girl


Look who joined the ranks of those riding big girl bikes.



Finally got that Christmas bike put together. And she is almost too tall for it already. That will teach me for waiting so long to get her a big girl bike…and daddy for taking so long to put it together. (Yes, her helmet is really loose here. I fixed it after the photo.)

Soon she will likely inherit Sabrina’s. Sabrina’s legs are getting long enough that she’ll need a new one by next Christmas.



Sigh. More proof that they keep growing up. Make it stop.

    My girl got the princess bike for Christmas…and already wants to take the training wheels off. Sigh. That brick on the head technique is NOT working.

    Gracie is almost 9 and just now learned how to ride sans training wheels. Who knows, now maybe she’ll master the art of shoe tying 😉
