I love his method for braking, Sarah ; ) He must be so proud to be riding on his own! Our oldest finally mastered her balance bike and we just ordered a new pedal bike this week... hoping she takes off on it, but probably facing a week or two of "I can't do it!" lol
I guess running into the lawn is the most logical way of coming to a stop. :) Yay for your daughter! I am so glad to be done with the whining for now, but I agree that it will return when we upgrade to a bigger bike!
