Lauren and Tyler do not know how to ride a bike without training wheels.
They are currently 9 and 6 years old.
This is unacceptable.
I have decided it is TIME for them to learn to ride a bike.
Today we bought Tyler a bigger bike (for his birthday next week) and he's been practicing riding it with the training wheels.
They will soon come off.
Lauren has had a bigger bike for years but pitches a fit any time she tries to ride it without training wheels.
"It's terrifying," she says.
Since Matt is infinitely more patient with L's tantrums, I enlisted him as the two-wheel trainer.
He spent a good 30 minutes off and on (in between pitched fits)
and made some serious progress.
