Is it silly to write about screen-free week online in a blog? Yes, probably. Tell you what. Print this out. Fold it twice and put it in your pocket. Then go outside and teach someone how to ride a bicycle.
People love to say that you never forget how to ride a bike. No one ever tells you that you might actually not remember the learning part. That's what happened to me when during a recent work meeting on National Bike To Work Week -- I blurted out that I just never learned the skill.
Today I am not at all prepared for this. If it works, if the little one rides off without training wheels, that's it. There are no more training wheels. Ever. And who among us is ready to deal with the enormity of that prospect? Not me, pal. Not me.
