Max’s Imagination

Since turning 2, Max has started to do a lot more imaginative play. Yesterday he took the bear and rabbit from Ally’s doll house and started playing with them. I could catch snippets of his conversation as he tried to put the bear to bed and get the rabbit to eat his lunch. Later on he called me over to have a look at this.

He had taken the stool from the bathroom and decided that this was the perfect bed for his rabbit and bear friends. He insisted that I tip toe pass them so as not to wake them from their sleep.

Riding On Two Wheels

I’ve written a review about Ally’s Strider bike and recently she has decided that she is ready to conquer her big girl bike without training wheels. She got the hang of it pretty quickly and the look on her face was priceless, she was absolutely thrilled!

I still love her Strider bike, in my opinion it’s the perfect bike for smaller size children like Ally and Max. It’s light and therefore easy for them to maneuver. If it came with pedals, it would be the perfect bike. The regular kids bikes are heavy, even the smallest models that we could find.  She has been dying to ride a real bike without training wheels from the time she was about 3 1/2 but since she simply wasn’t strong enough, she had to wait.

Now at 4, the weight of her big girl bike is still an issue but she’s managing. I’ve no doubt she’ll be flying down slopes pretty soon.
