Cause you've givin' me the most beautiful set of wings
And I'm so glad you're here today
Cause tomorrow I might have to go and fly away
(sung by Tim Mcgraw).
Mike and I bought Vanessa a bike for her 4th birthday. She was so excited when Mike put it together and couldn't wait to ride it. She had the complete safety gear. Helmet, elbow pads, knee pads and gloves. She jumped on the bike and with very few instructions, was ready to ride. We went up and down our road and she did such a great job with pedaling forward and using the brake when needed.
I will admit, I cried. It's bitter sweet to see my baby on her first bike, riding like a pro, and looking back to make sure mom was still there. Vanessa did have a couple of falls but she got right back on the bike and kept on going.
I am so proud of my daughter and am glad I got to share this very special moment with her. Vanessa and I had a great time, it's a memory I will cherish forever!!
