Aidan turned three today. And three-year-old boys are so easy to please.
Aidanâ€™s been pining for a bike since the snow melted and heâ€™s observed kids riding around the park and through the neighborhood on them. He's wanted one so bad that every time we went to a store that sells bikes, he heads straight to the bike section and start climbing on them.
So when he saw a new bike sitting in the living room this afternoon, he went nuts. HeÂ spent the next hour learning how to pedal it. He hasnâ€™t mastered the concept of pedaling completely but he made great progress today. Despite the fact he canâ€™t pedal that well, he stuck with it until he was exhausted.
When I tucked him in bed, he asked if Iâ€™d help him learn how to ride the bike tomorrow. I told him I would.
What a great kid. Heâ€™s been such a joy and a blessing in our life.Â Â
I just canâ€™t believe itâ€™s been three years since he was born. The next thing you know, he'll be asking me to borrow the keys to my car.
Love you, kid!
