Well it seem the school holidays are well and truly in full swing and with it means trying new things and trying to keep active.
Earlier this week my #52LittleThings challenge had been to go for a bike ride or a swim. We had decided that swimming was going to occur on Ollie’s next day off but the Kiddimoto balance bike had been chosen and was on route to The Oliver’s Madhouse for Joshua to finally get his very first bike.
So Joshua’s first thoughts on getting a new bike, helmet and gloves was nothing short of pure unadulterated excitement ….. unfortunately it didn’t last long….
It seems on Joshua’s maiden voyage he decided instantly that he couldn’t do it and he actually threw down his bike and cried, declaring he couldn’t do it. Trust me when I say this but this almighty temper tantrum has been the most epic so far this school holidays and that included from the teen too!
So after the initial meltdown subsided we tried again with him and after an uncertain few minutes it seems he is now on his official journey to learn to ride a bike.
Training begins in earnest from here on in!
