Coco mastered cycling on Sunday.
Having loved her balance bike she had been somewhat cagey about riding her proper bike, but she went out with Hugh on Sunday and she cracked it.
Now there's no stopping her, and she wants to cycle everywhere.
The other day we just went out the front of the house so she could ride up and down the street. I said she could cycle to her friends house and back at the end of the road and embracing her new found freedom she peddled off. Henry was busy in his wellies, stomping around and splashing in the puddles, I got a bit distracted trying to stop him from venturing into a particularly deep (and manky) puddle but then realised I couldn't see Coco so I got a bit panicy. I called her name a couple of times, nothing, so I picked Henry up and attempted to run down the road (must have been a pretty sight with me in my cagool and pj bottoms) only to find her in the front garden of her friends house where she'd rung the bell and was busy showing off her new skills!
