Big Boy Bike
SJ had a Gift Card for Toysrus to use so we went and put it to good use on Monday.
It was the 1st time he had ever been given an amount of money and been able to pick out whatever he wanted. Of course he wanted everything he touched but we had finally settled on a spider man mega blocks set, a grabber like his BFF's, an uno game and some books.
Then we hit the bike section. I had wanted to get him a big boy bike for Christmas but every time we saw one in an advertisement SJ would say Mommy tell Santa I dont want a bike like that, I don't know how to ride it.
I was a bit shocked when he spotted them and said MOMMY I WANT ONE OF THOSE so we looked at them and picked out one he almost had enough money for and let him ride it around the store. He rode like he had been riding forever.
We then had the conversation, you can either have everything in the cart or this 1 bike. To my surprise he picked the bike.
We have been on 2 bike rides so far, he likes making me run to keep up with him and honestly I like it too, it will help me lose the rest of this weight!
