a girl and her bike

Remember this? Our little diva who wouldn't pedal because it was "too hawd" and chose instead to have multiple meltdowns in the driveway?

Well...one day last week she decided she was "too growed-up" to ride in the stroller on our walks and she made up her mind to master pedaling. And master it she did!

The next day, she rode her bike the entire 3.2 miles of our walk. No fussing. No whining. No meltdowns. No quitting. She even fell once...we thought that would be the end of it but no...she got right back on and kept on going! Now she loves her bike. She rides it around the driveway with her bucket of dandelions, singing songs. 

My Mom told me Piper's passion and spunk would contribute to her accomplishing tasks and goals...and I'd say this is Exhibit A to evidence that wise sentiment. So proud of our little girl. :)

What a beautiful girl! Happy to hear she mastered pedaling our middle child currently wants nothing to with it.
