Molly's First Taste of Independance
Molly achieved a big milestone today. She rode her bike, by herself, without training wheels. It didn't take her long to figure out how to balance and for me to let go. I thought I was ready, as I was exhausted from running beside her for about 30 minutes, but then, as I watched her going further and further away from me I realized this was a huge moment. This was Molly's first true taste of Independence. If she were to fall she would be too far away for me to get there immediately. She was on her own. What a moment. I am so very grateful I was there to help her achieve it. I helped her learn how to balance and I learned, just a little bit, how to let go.
