This Labor Day weekend has been stressful. Not because I had to work while everyone was off sunbathing by the lake but because I was off and decided to tackle a project that I really didn’t want to do.
That project? Re-teaching my 8 year old son how to ride his bike. Sounds easy because re-teaching should just take a gentle nudge, an encouraging word or a trip down memory lane to recollect about how he rode his bike last summer. As a matter of fact, he rode his bike just two weeks ago. But, two weeks ago he also fell off his bike (in the grass so don’t shed too many tears) and that led to the drama that we have experienced over the holiday.
