bicycles and parenting

He can ride.  All by himself.   That means he can move a lot faster than I can, as I run behind carrying his little brother.  He rides ahead and slowly disappears, out of site.  I trust him and I worry, just a little.  Other mothers smile as they pass us by in acknowledgment of this big event, which is about so much more than just riding a bike.


Strong roots grow strong branches and then one day the leaves take flight.
