The reminder I needed
Parker learned to ride a bike! Just jumped up one day, age 9, and said I want to take my training wheels off. It's not something we've ever pushed, we have plenty to work with with him and he could of cared less, didn't even touch the bike for a year. So, we were quite surprised. He got it, probably the 3rd or 4th try. It was such a reminder when I worry about things that Parker will most likely get to it when he wants too. When he has the desire and determination. And it's just not going to matter if that's at age 5 or age 9 in the long run with most things. True to Parker form, and boy did I learn this the hard way, it's on his clock and forcing him when he's not ready is just painful. I don't even want to think about those potty training days, when I finally came to this realization!
