No Training Wheels!

David can now ride his bike without training wheels.

Hold onto your shorts mom, your first born has officially left that last bit of preschool-like behaviors behind. (get a grip mom, he is 7 after all!)

Our local park has a skateboard ramp area. Since it is day 1 with no training wheels, David and his buddy Noah, decide they are ready for the ramps. (Is this when a mom begins to wrap their kid in 6 inch thick bubble wrap? Does Sam's Club carry this by the case?)

I was actually busy attending to Nathan and Caleb to not witness this. Good thing John was supervising. I would have had eyeballs the size of saucers.

As John is telling me about the boys' ramp adventure, I am reminded of the words of my mother-in-law (God bless her). She always said that John's bike was in the air more that it was on the ground. Oh No! Did she give him the mother's curse?! (You know the: "I hope you have a child just like you!")

I am not sure how to feel about this. I mean, John lived right? He only broke his bones from the bike once. I think.

I better start wearing my dental night guard. I can feel the clenching and grinding coming on right now.
