Man Cub had a big Summer with one major accomplishment.
He learned to ride a bike.
The training wheels came off, a few test runs in the house so he was bouncing off carpet instead of pavement and voila'! After 2 weeks he was flying around on that puppy. Not to say that there weren't some scraped knees but I was amazed how fast he picked it up. Maybe because his sister didn't learn until she was 8. Yep, she's not an outdoorsey sort of gal. Now he thinks he can do tricks. Stinker.
And this week he reached another milestone. Preschool. He was quite brave about the whole thing, no tears when Mommy dropped him off and he gets to ride the bus now. It was a big deal because he's never been in daycare, just home all day with Mommy or Auntie but he did just great and I think the social interaction will be really good for him. However I think he's already learned it's not so fun to get up early each morning and get ready to head out to school, instead of watching cartoons. After only 3 days he's picked up on that. Yep, he's a fast learner.
I wasn't sure I was ready to let him go, much as he drives me crazy sometimes! But he's having fun and I'm sure once I get into the routine I will enjoy having the mornings Man Cub free.
Ah, my sweet Cub, Auntie LOVES you!
