A big moment in a little boy's life...

September 1, 2009

And once again he's not wearing pants for the picture... but who cares? He's got a new bike!
I got a picture on my mobile with a text from Dad saying, "Can I buy it for him?" I don't know who was more excited. Dad to give it to Ashton, or Ashton coming to the realization that the bike was for him when his dad came home.

That is one happy boy! The only problem... he didn't have a helmet yet. So he rode his bike in the apartment (we live on the 3rd floor) for 2 days until we made it to the city to buy him a helmet. And yes, it drove me crazy!!! Do you know how annoying it is to have a toddler ride a little bike around the house and through the kitchen all day, for 2 days straight? Oh, wait! Of course you don't. Because NO parent in their right minds would let their kids ride inside!

And as soon as we got back, I took him outside for a "test drive". (The expression really applies here, since it's a Lightning McQueen bike, ha! It even has a battery operated "bell": it sounds like an engine revving. It's adorable)

He was SO good riding it! He was completely in control of his bike, even when turning, or going on and off the sidewalk. A natural!
At least now the bike never has to come back in :)
