Wordless & Wordful Wednesday {linky party}: I am a BIG GIRL now! | Week 5

I had a tough time teaching Sophia how to ride on a 2 wheeler,
as compared to Hiroshi.
Her fear of falling and hurting herself impairs her ability to listen to my instructions.

That reaffirms my thoughts that teaching kids does not come in 1 standard blueprint.

I was on the brim of calling quits,
and perhaps adopt the ostrich parenting style.
Bury my head in the sand
and hopefully, one of these days she might just magically learn to ride on her own!

But, that was not going to happen when you get a strong willed child.
Peer pressure from school was awful.
It seems that they are calling kids who still rides on training wheels "baby".

The princess was now very determine to learn.

So i googled on how to ride a bike. 
And this video has been exceptionally helpful!  

After 3 days of waddling, 
 and getting strange stares from people.
She finally got it!!!

I just can't tell you how proud I was of her 
when she shouted with glistering eyes, 
"Mummy, I DID IT!!!"

Great to see your little girl riding a two wheeler. I've yet to train my #2 to ride one and his bike still has training wheels on. Something that I aim to do this year with him.
