Lord V and I worked with MiniWarrior last week to try and teach him how to ride his bike.
As he is Autistic--it's been a labor because he spaces out and forgets to pedal and he doesn't get the whole "center your body so you don't tip over" thing.
Lord V and I took turns running beside MiniWarrrior, frantically hanging on to his bike and shoving ourselves against it to hold him upright. It was exhausting to say the least.
Monday evening I received a call from MiniWarriors Dad telling me that MiniWarrior had something to tell me.
I learned to ride my bike!
Yep, I sure did!
Oh my gosh! Congratulations, Son!
Thanks, Mom! I did like you said. I remember you sayin' about that kid who took 2 weeks to learn and how sometimes he fell and skinned his knees but he didn't give up and guess what?
I didn't give up!
I'm so proud of you!
Yep. Me too. I'm proud too!
Wait. Wait. I've got to tell Lord V.

LORD V! MINIWARRIOR LEARNED TO RIDE HIS BIKE!
OMG! THATS WONDERFUL! CONGRATULATIONS!!
*proud little boy giggle on the phone*
I didn't give up, Mom. Just like you tole me. I didn't give up.
I'm all sorts of proud, Peeps. I got sappy, proud Momma tears.
Our MiniWarrior rocks.
