We have been working on this bike thing with Kate for a while. Ben took her out about a month ago and she was getting it but was too scared for him to let go. I tried once but it was hard for me to run next to her on the sidewalk so I gave up for a while. She was becoming frustrated because Daphne took over her bike the second we took off the training wheels since her other bike was stolen. So the other day I took her out in the street and started running behind her. It took me about 3 strides and she was off on her own and mission complete. She has told Daphne repeatedly that she is not to touch her bike anymore cause it's hers! Now Kate lives outside and always tries to sneak out without her helmet.
