Riding into the sunset..

My 5 year old daughter is very independent. She always has been.

The girl basically potty trained herself, she started getting dressed by herself when she was just over a year old for crying out loud.

This type of behavior should not be a shock to me, but it still is.

We live on a hill, a pretty steep hill actually, and my youngest daughter would not ride her little bike down it, even though she still uses training wheels.

That is until this week.

Yesterday, most of the early afternoon was spent with me working and listening to her sing as she flew down the hill on her bike. It was so great that I even posted on Facebook about it.

I decided that tomorrow morning we would head to the bike path near our house and have a go with riding on just 2 wheels. The kids started playing with their friends up the street and I set out doing chores around the house.

While trying to figure out what to make for dinner, the neighbor kids came running in and yelling something about a bike and my daughter. I instantly thought she had crashed on her bike and started to head up the hill, but then my daughter arrived with a big smile on her face. They all told me that she had something to show me and ushered me up the hill to where it’s flat.

Imagine my surprise when this happened..

I am STILL in awe of her. This little girl just amazes me so much it’s scary.

Now if she could only teach herself how to do the laundry we would be set. 😉


  1. Rock on!!! What a little genius! Love her personality, “what???” Ha!

  2. That is so awesome, Tina!

    My daughter is also soooo independent. When she was only a few weeks old, Brian and I looked at each other and said, “Wow. Good for her. Bad for us!”
