Today while at his friend Liam's house, he hopped on Liam's real bike and was able to ride it all by himself from that moment on, without any help or training. He didn't have any accidents, even riding on a downhill slope. He loved it! Yay!
So... I guess now we are the balance bike missionaries. You should get one for your kiddo because apparently they really do work! Looks like we'll be getting jj a real bike for his birthday... (shhh don't tell him)
here's a short vid of him riding while my friend Nola, Liam's mom, looks on:
I guess this also goes to show that you never know what your kid can do until you let him try.
