Riding a Two Wheeler
When Lilah first came home, and for a very long time afterwards, she did not want to do anything for herself. She wanted everything done for her and if she couldn't do something the first time, would try to give up.
But we pushed her. Because we knew that she could do many great things, if only she would learn to try, try and try again.
I am proud to say, that she now will ALWAYS try, try and try again. She will take a task and spend hours on it, until she has figured it out. I had told the girls this weekend, that if they learned to ride Silas' two wheeler, that I would take them shopping to buy them their very own two wheeler.
Lilah spent about five hours on Saturday learning how to ride a two wheeler like a pro. We had to help her a little at first, riding a bike with brakes can be challenging! But she did it!
So on Sunday, we headed out and she picked out her very favourite bike, in her very favourite colour. As soon as she saw the baby seat and mini helmet on the back, the bike was sold!
