Maybe I'm still trying to find my balance -- but not on a bike. This time it's as a mom -- the balance between keeping them safe and pushing them to learn to ride on their own -- and I'm always afraid I'm screwing it up.
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.
