He Did It!


Other kids zoom by
As he walks down the sidewalk.
I can’t ride a bike.

We know you can ride.
How long will it take to learn?
You just got to try.

He tries many times.
Then a wobbly start smooths out
He proved himself wrong!

Haiku Friday We're so proud of Ethan for not giving up. Want to read more haikus? Click here.

Fantastic!! I love the picture and it is one he'll remember when he starts teaching his own child to ride a bike!

Aw, perfect picture and perfect haiku chronicling this rite of passage. :)

Sarah said...

YAY!! We can't even get our daughter ride her bike. She fell off once and now won't get back on. Has a literal meltdown if we try to encourage her to get back on :(

Have a wonderful weekend.

How thrilling! I remember my first time riding a bike by myself...I thought my dad was still holding onto the back but he wasn't, and I was excited and scared to find that I was doing it myself. Nice haiku too!

Wahoo! That is so cute. My little guy hasn't even figured out pedaling yet, but I'm sure this day will come for me sooner than I think!
