3rd of October 2015.
You were given this bike ‘hello kitty’ for your 4th birthday back in June .
You were very excited to ride it. We went with nana to halfords to choose it , along with your helmet and dolls seat. Had to have a dolls seat!
We were away on hoilday for your birthday but first weeknd back we went to Nana’s so you could ride it. Grandad was very excited . You hopped on the bike, Grandad wobbled it and you decided you weren’t Going to ride Hello Kitty.
No matter how much we said it was ok , you would be fine , it will be fun . You weren’t having any of it . Intill one September day , the 4th September in fact. Mummy remebers because it was the Friday before you started school.
Mummy went out with you on the Hello Kitty , in her pocket she had a packet of dairy free chocolate buttons . Mummy would run a distance away and you would ride to her and recive a choclate button.
It may have been bribery , it may have felt a bit like dog training to mummy at points but it worked !
You were riding your bike. We continued to encourage you and presude you to ride your bike . You grew more and more confident . No more choclate buttons needed !
We thought we would brave it this October day . We had been in most of the day at Nana’s house . Feeling brave we decided to take you , your brother, 3 dogs and two adults on a trip to the shops. A reasonable distance , a task for everyone.
You feel off twice , but you got back on and keep going . Signing as you went . We couldn’t have been more proud of you .
