Proud Mommy Moments: Look, Mom...

Ryan got a new bike earlier this month.  We used our tax return.  He was chomping at the bit to get it.  We looked online at several different styles.  He got a Mongoose.  It even has pegs on the front wheels for stunts--that he will not be doing!  It's a cool bike.   Funny thing, stunt pegs and all, it had training wheels.  He was riding it all over the place.  And from about the third or fourth day, he wanted them off.  We put it off.  It rained.  We put it off more.  He got sick.  We put it off.  I got siiiiiiiick.  And finally, Rich took those training wheels off. 

We thought we would be spending the afternoon taking turns helping him balance.  And the night fighting over the corn bag.  But that simply wasn't the case.  Rich said it took longer to find the right size socket wrench than it did for Ryan to take off and ride.  He just did it.  So yep, like any true parent and blogger, I grabbed my phone and made a quick video!


He blew us all away that day.  So I guess it wasn't just me who was proud.  Do you have a proud moment?  Link up with EmmyMom and KMama!

Great job for his first try with no training wheels. Looked pretty proud of himself too, cute.

I too posted a Mommy Moment- My kid is an orphan. Feel free to read it.

That is so so awesome! Seriously crazy good just out the bat like that. We still haven't had a chance to try with Lucas since seeing this video.

Very cool! Maybe this will inspire my kiddo!

Such a milestone! I remember when we took Punky's training wheels off. It feels like a million years ago.

That is awesome! Doesn't it just amaze you how they can sometimes just "get it" right away?
