One of the perks of being a Mom, is the ability to relive childhood again through your kids. To feel grass or mud on your toes, to see the beauty of nature and the surprise of new knowledge. I love that part of parenting!
A couple weeks ago I was able to relive the exhilaration of learning to ride a bike for the first time through Jaden. Remember that feeling? The wind in your hair and speeding down a road – alone and unbridled. Nothing holding you back. Just you and the bike at top speed and a first taste of what freedom is.
He is so cute on his bike. The first few morning after learning to ride he would get up, get dressed and go outside to ride and ride. The newness is wearing off but he is out there everyday perfecting his turns and going through mud puddles.
My wheels donít seem to touch the road
As I fly through the wind.
When I look down,
The road flashes by.
When I look up,
The world is slow motion again,
And I swerve a corner,
