His First Ride...well, not counting his wagon, tricycle, big wheel, various bicycles and skateboards, etc.
And yes, the time went by so fast! He's been working full-time and saving for a car. I guess the saving (at least for the car he wanted/wants) was taking too long because today he asked me to drive him to another city to see this motorcycle. I knew as soon as I saw him straddle it that it was coming home with us...the look of sheer glee on his face told the tale before he ever uttered the words. I wasn't really surprised, he'd mentioned wanting a bike several times over the last couple of years, but I can't lie, a part of me was hoping his first vehicle would have four wheels, not two. As a mom, I just worry about his safety. But he's nineteen now, and responsible, and he should be able to choose what he wants to drive. And so, I'm very proud of him. He's worked, and saved, and purchased his first vehicle; the vehicle HE wants, for outright cash. And now he'll have his summer ride.
Just between you and me though...for the very first time ever, in my entire life, I may be glad when winter rolls around. ;)
Congrats on the new bike, JG!
