The Best Day Ever

My daughter had last Friday off from school. We spent the afternoon lazing in the grass and reading books until she sat up and said, "I want to learn to ride a two-wheeler."

We spent the next two hours practicing, and she got it. I watched her riding away, thrilled with her accomplishment.

It was a metaphor for everything I hope for her future - that she will be independent, confident, and happy with herself.

That's great! It would certainly be awesome if she took life by the handlebars, wouldn't it-just a little gudance and off they go. I love little people, tell her I send congratulations from the blogosphere.

Thanks, t.allen! She was so excited. She told me yesterday, "I can't remember when I couldn't ride a two-wheeler!" It's amazing how easy some things seem once you learn to do them.
