Praise for balance bikes

If someone had told me a few years ago my 3 year old would be riding a two-wheel bike with no training wheels, I would have laughed at them… actually, hubby predicted he’d be riding a bike at 3… and I’m ashamed to say that laughing was my reaction.

My jaw dropped earlier this week, when Brian ran in the house and called me and the girls outside to watch Caleb ride his bike back and forth on our sidewalk.  Unbelievable!!

We got him a balance bike for a really early second birthday,  (had he turned 1 yet?  who knows) and he’s been on it almost every day for at least 30 minutes.  We got the strider brand, but I don’t think the brand really matters, just get a light one, that’s a good height, so your busy toddler wants to get on it every day.
