Emily's goal last month was to learn how to ride a bike without training wheels. After a few lessons from mom she grasped it. Here's proof that she accomplished her goal. I'm so proud of her. She kindly reminded me that I promised her a High School Musical Bike from Toys R Us when she could ride on her own. Looks like I'll be spending a whopping $100 bucks on her new bike this weekend. Ouch! That's the price tag for this new shiny turquoise piece of metal with wheels. What was I thinking!? I remember making the promise but I guess I just didn't think she'd catch on to riding that quick! Next time I'll promise her something small, like an ice cream cone or maybe a happy meal. No more $100 prizes. It's too late to get out of this one; I don't want to be known as the mother who breaks her promises.
