A little nice family time
Since Joe has been home all day these days we have been able to have a lot of family time to share. We have bought a kiddie pool which we have attached the kids' little tykes slide to to create a water slide, plus a sprinkler, plus a slip in slide. Needless to say our kids shouldn't be bored. It's nice to have Joe be home when the kids get to do fun stuff like that. Especially on teaching Whitney how to ride her bike without training wheels..she still is a little scared of falling down, and hasn't stayed upright on her bike long enough to even call it close. Hopefully before summer is through she will have the hang of it. Its funny to see mine and Joe's different approaches to coaching her through the balancing art of it. Joe pretty much tells her to toughen up and stands back and watches her--I try to explain it in detail-maybe too much detail how it should feel..etc, then hold the back of the bike while she pedals and then I let go. So it's no wonder the poor kid is taking forever-she is probably so confused because of US!!!
