Training Wheels

The Ladybug decided that it was time to learn to ride her bike without training wheels. Yup, my girl was ready to rip off those training wheels and ride like the wind! Some of you may remember going through this process as a kid and recall numerous spills, scraped knees, and lots of trying again and again and again before finally riding your bike smoothly, like a pro. Well, that is exactly what the Ladybug experienced. Except, rather than it taking this "little go-getter" weeks or even days to master this process, it only took two afternoons and one very dedicated daddy.

The Ladybug started to process yesterday. She was barely able to keep the bike upright. When she did and was finally able to get it going, she totally forgot how to turn, and thus she crashed continuously. She crashed into the curb, a car, the grass, etc. She kept trying, but didn't improve much.

Today, daddy and the Bug tried again. Here is footage from her first attempt today.

And, of course there were some spills:

And finally, this is how the Ladybug ended the day.  I am telling you, if this girl continues to learn things this quickly, she will be in graduate school by the time she is 10!

Way to go girl!!!
