A New Set of Wheels (Finally!)

Poor Riley has been zipping around on a tricycle for two years now.  Not even a tricycle, more like a very small “big wheel”.  In our defense, she did not want a bike last year when we offered.  This year her knees were just about hitting the handlebars as she pedaled and her sister and neighbor friend were constantly zipping past her on their bikes.  After one such incident she turned to me and said “Mom, I need a bike.”

The next day we went to Walmart and found one that suited her needs.  It helps that her “needs” were: a bell.


Luckily, her Dora helmet came with a bell.  We picked up a basket to carry around her treasures, and she was off!


Her sister and friend are still zipping past her but with another couple weeks of practice she’ll be right there with them.  The only thing she has perfected is ringing her bell.
