Ben has recently committed himself to excellence in no-handlebar bike riding, the icing on the cake being his recent accomplishment of no-hands riding while patting his head and rubbing his tummy.
And while hands-free riding can get a little annoying (on a recent ride, Me: Ben, why are you riding so slowly? Are you feeling ok? Ben: (with his perfected tween "how did you get so dense, Mom?" face) It's hard to ride fast when you're doing the whole thing with no hands!) we have to admit immense pride and a bit of jealousy at Ben's new skills.
When the boy puts his mind to something,
he really can accomplish just about anything! I think it's time to get that kid a unicycle. Do they come in junior sizing?
