An Early Birthday Present...
Ever since Caleb was three, he would ask Beau in his sweet little voice "daddy, I want a motorbike like you." Beau would say "When you get older. You have to learn to ride a bike without training wheels first." Caleb has been persistent in his asking. He remembered last year when he mastered his bike at age four and then really started asking about his motorbike. Beau finally told him "When you turn five, we will see what we can do."
With his Birthday less than a month away, you can imagine Caleb's persistent hounding about "daddy's promise". Of course being the over-protective mother that I am, I was pretty dead set that he wouldn't be getting one. That five was WAY to young!! But Beau reassured me that he NEEDED to teach his little man to ride so he could have a constant ridding budding through the years. So I told them both that we could start looking and tucked my babysitting money so we could get one!
We found a 2006 Honda CRF 50 at seriously a steal of a deal. So we took Caleb up to see how it fit him and of course, both Beau and him were hooked! And of course, Beau couldn't wait two more weeks to give it to him, so Caleb got an early birthday present.
I seriously thought it would take days, or weeks for him to learn to ride it. I looked outside after only TEN MINUTES and this is what I saw!!
I am still amazed that he rode so quickly!!
