Big Day For My Little Man

So, my five year old has a bit of a resistance to trying new things. His staple diet is pretty much hot dogs, mac and cheese and peanut butter sandwiches. I have to sneak stuff in his food in order to get him to eat vegetables. Well, today I broke out the breadmaker and tried some zucchini bread. He was so excited to try it- which amazed me. Then, when he did try it there was no hesitation and he loved it so much he took off with the whole loaf. It was a pretty big day for him. Next, he decided to take the training wheels off his bike. I told him he had to wait for Daddy to get home- thinking I might be chasing him for a while with my hand on his seat (I was picturing my dear swedish friend as I watched her run up and down the street holding her son, Marcus' bike one day. I admired her resilience). SO, Dad got home and took the wheels off. He took off like a pro. A few wobbles and a crash or two but overall he was amazing! So of course Mom took a video of it. It's hilarious. He took off and ran straight into the mailboxes. If I'd gotten a better shot it would have been AFV worthy...
