Eli had his 3 year checkup last week. The doctor methodically went through the list of questions used to determine if your child is on track developmentally.
Is he sleeping in his own bed at night?
Can he draw a circle?
Does he feed himself?
Can he count to ten?
Yes, yes, yes and yes, we answered.
Can he pedal a tricycle?
This kid eats tricycles for breakfast, lady.
*This was taken as we were preparing to go on the inaugural Six Family trail ride. Mike had taken the kids on a 4-mile trail ride a couple of weeks earlier and they had a blast. Unfortunately, it was pouring down rain and the good people at Bicycle Garage Indy suggested that we come back when the trail was dry. Apparently wet trails and novice riders do not mix. Seeing as how we were nearly one year removed to the day from a broken arm, we decided not to tempt fate and instead went out for brunch. No one ever gets injured eating brunch, right?
