on your bike

6 Aug

Today was a very special day in our becoming pappy journey – as the kids both went from riding bikes with stabilisers to riding on just two wheels.

It is actually one of those occasions I had always dreamt about having with my children, the special moment when they first make that little, wobbly journey on their bikes – just a few metres – was so fantastic to see.

It all happened quite unexpectedly, but the motivation came from the kids themselves – having seen a neighbour’s granddaughter of a similar age, peddling herself around on two wheels was all it took to make both of them (4 and 7 years) ask me to remove one stabiliser first and then after a short while the other one too.

Anyway – I wanted to put a post up about this special day, to mark the occasion for prosperity. It is incredible how quickly kids learn and develop new things – it was only 3 weeks ago that both of them could barely pedal a bike at all.

I would like to think that our love, attention, encouragement and support has helped them crack this in such a positive and speedy way!

Every day they do something that amazes us, makes us proud and surprises us.

    I’ve stumbled upon your story, and now I’ve read about your journey.
    Being a parent is not always easy, but it’s the most beautiful and important thing you two will ever do in your life, for as long as you live 🙂
    Reading your adoption story, I of course cried, and smiled, and thought that is not so much different from becoming a parent the traditional way. 18 months for 2 children, that’s how much I had to wait to get mine 🙂
    Sometimes it was painful (being pregnant is also not a walk in the park, trust me!), but at the end of it, there are these two wonderful, amazing small people in your life, and you will never feel anything else but endless love for them, from now on. Even when you will feel exhausted or upset, you’ll still love them 🙂
    Congratulations! May love and all the good things in life, be with you all!
