Pedaling around on a sunny day
Liam doesn't go a day without asking to go out for a ride on his fire engine, but he really hasn't been very concerned with learning to pedal it. He would get tired of trying to get it going forward - since it's apparently easier to pedal backwards - and would eventually put his feet down and pull himself along that way. Then a few days ago I took him in a bicycle shop where he found a bike his size and it was just what he wanted. He tried and tried to ride it, but of course he couldn't pedal it well enough to keep himself going forward; he kept braking. I told he he had to learn to pedal his fire engine before we could get a bike - a perfect encouragement to learn to pedal, apparently.
