It has been a little more than a year that we got M her trike and even though she had taken an instant liking to it, she had not really been able to pedal on her own all these months.
Today, she took us by surprise by pedaling all by herself! I was so thrilled - she was too - a new found independence, I think, she feels. She has to lean to steer properly and pedal at the same time - just now the focus is all over the place - also I realized she still does not have the strength to pedal uphill - since almost all roads and streets we take our sloping, she will have to learn to go uphill to do downhill - oh well, all in her own time!
She is quite the cheeky brat thought, as she asked me "how are we celebrating my cycling?'
Oh, and she also feels that since she "can cycle now, she needs a bike, a skateboard, and a scooter".
And she also remarked that I should get my own cycle and then we can go on adventures together.
Like seriously, keep the handle straight lady!
