Life's Lesson # 234:

When you fall off the bike, brush yourself off and try again.

Learning to ride a bike is alot like life. It scares the heck out of you, filling your head with thoughts of falling. If you don't give it a try however you'll never really know your full potential.

When Gabby fell yesterday while trying to learn to ride her "big girl" bike, it broke my heart. Although seeing my kids hurt probably does more damage to me than it does them, I knew I had to get her to try again. I wanna teach my daughters that its OK to fail. Sometimes despite our best effort, things still go wrong. If we learn to wipe away the dirt & tears and stay strong however, we'll do just fine.
