Yep, you guessed it, Sophie! Sophie had wanted a bike, a “pink” bike, mind you, for quite some time now. My sis and B.I.L had all the perfect reasons to not get her one: not enough place to store it, she would not use it when they all when out (she has a seat attached to B.I.L’s bike), she already has a scooter, etc, etc.
Well my parents and I thought this was outrageous. How could a little girl be denied a bike? Who are these people? (Liz, Cas, I love you guys, but this was borderline cruel). Who in their right mind does this to a child? Not us, certainly, not us. And as you can see we are not ones to stand by and just observe, we are doers. So my mom sent me out on a mission: buy Sophie a bike, a “pink” bike.
Last Sunday I got some one-on-one time with the Soph and we were off, bike shopping. At the store she tried a few and the 12″ one seem to be the right fit. We chose one and they took it off to the mechanics to get checked up. While we waited for it Sophie looked at the bike and then at me, pointing to the bike saying “That’s my bike”. “I’m so happy. That’s my bike.” With the biggest smile you have ever seen. Check her out.
Note: Sorry for the poor quality of the pics. Again, all I had was my cell phone camera.
