Bobby and I had decided that we were NOT going to get Georgie a bike with training wheels. I'd read several articles and been told by others that it was best to get your kid a balance bike. As it was explained to me, kids who use a balance bike learn to ride a regular bike so much easier and faster and plus, the balance bikes are safer. Very logical, decision made.
But then we were at that store and G saw this Rapunzel bike and it was purple with streamer things coming off the handle bars and G said "mama, a rapunzel bike! its purple!!!" All logic went out the window.
G loves riding her "big girl" bike around the neighborhood. These pix crack me up because seriously, why would anyone be riding a bike in a pink tutu and shiney silver shoes???
