That leads me to Peanut. He had Little Man's 10 inch bike passed down to him about 6 months ago but felt that it was too "wobbly" and had only sat on it a few times. Watching Little Man get praises for his effort spurred Peanut to try it again. (Papa Bear did adjust the training wheels to get them as stable as possible) and now we are having to pry Peanut off of his bike in order to get him to eat and occasionally come inside. It is a joy to see and a balm to my sometimes anxious heart about the limitations that apraxia will impose on my boy. I know that there are no limitations to what he can do and he proves that to me all the time, but these reminders are still wonderful. He also uses a foot dragging method to stop and has literally shredded 2 different pairs of crocs. We consider it a small sacrifice to the bike gods.
Sweet Pea is now granted access to the trike so we are working on pedaling although she is in no hurry to learn and prefers to be pushed in her car - she is a smart one :)
We are so close to being able to go for family bike rides which is something that both Papa Bear and I have fantasized about for 5 years. Now we just have to get me back on a bike - something I haven't done since falling off Papa Bear's bike in college.
