I want to ride my bicycle

I want to ride it where I like



How can this be? Is this really my baby boy, my first born son, riding a bike around the block? Wow! Is this not a moment to cherish, moms? The first time your child rides a 'real' bicycle? Can you say emotional? I can't believe what a big boy he is!

He kept saying to me:

"Mommy, this is making my muscles stronger."

Yes, son, it is. Now only if mommy got on her bike, too...

Each little milestone is such a huge deal to me, as you all know by now. I might fall into a deep depression when my boys grow up and go away to University. Seriously - I'm only paying for them if they stay in the city. I can't handle my out of control emotions!

Have to add that usually my son is not dressed so mis-matched-y. This was the outfit I found him in when I picked him up from my in-laws last week. Outfit number 2 or 3, after a day spent outside gardening. That meant no clean clothes left at her house. At least, no clean clothes that matched!

Awww - he looks so cute riding his bicycle! He's doing a great job! Wait until the training wheels come off, then you'll go from being emotional to cringing at every turn...gotta love these milestones though.

Thanks for you kind words about my phone loss -- I'm super bummed and LOST without it. Hubs took it with him to work today so we'll see if it can be fixed.

Have a nice Monday :)

So cute! These milestones are fun - except for the reminder that they're getting bigger and older. Sniff.

When you have a minute come over to my blog - there's a little something waiting for you there. :)

Such a great milestone!

Paging Doctor Mommy said...

Now my daughter truly thinks that I am crazy as I can't stop singing that song!

What a proud moment for you mom!

What a big boy - he looks like he might already be an expert!!

Kelly said...

His outfit doesn't look mismatched. He looks very handsome and grown up. My kids better not go far away for university either. I'd much rather they live next door

Chelle said...

He.is.adorable!

That IS a big milestone, honey! And it's up to us moms to make a big deal out of each milestone :) I know I do :)

That's terrific! Riding a bike is no small task, ask my seven year old...who is STILL trying to master it (he's not very cooridiated obviously). I think we own an exact match to that tricycle, my little one loves it because it's so sturdy!

Like I said before, it's great you have this blog to document all these wonderful milestones!

PS missmatchy or not he still looked like a cutiepie!

Oh, how perceptive you are to time's passing to quickly carrying our children with her!

That is so sweet!

BeachMama said...

That is awesome. I am still trying to get J on his bike. Apple rides the trikes up and down the driveway and I have to peel her away screaming. J is in the process of being bribed, I mean rewarded, if he can ride his bike for a week without crying.

I cry all the time--milestones are big!! Just the little bitty milestones like chewing gum or first time in a swimming pool. I am telling ya--don't think I can make it without being emotional. I cry when my sweet Cash smiles!!

I feel the same way, my oldest took off his training wheel the start of the summer - oh the tears!

Cute photo and cute of you all explaining his outfit. He's a boy - I'm so use to crazy looking outfits :)

How cute! My oldest started riding a bike w/out training wheels at 3, it was crazy! They need to stay small longer, don't they?

Elaine A. said...

I think he's adorable, "mis-matchy" outfit and all! : )

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

too sweet - my kids so need new bikes - their old ones are too small and we have yet to purchase new ones!

Chantal said...

So cute. I have to find the training wheels for M's bike. He has been bugging me about it.

CaraBee said...

What a big boy, riding his bike!

PS - I hadn't even noticed the clothes.
