The 2 Wheeler

There is a little girl who lives 2 doors down from us.  Her name is Alexis.  She is 5.  She is small for her age, which James points out regularly.  "Alexis is 5 and I am only 4 and a 1/2, but I am bigger than her."  Alexis also rides a 2 wheeler.  

As soon as James observed this, he was in turmoil.  His competitive spirit could hardly bear to have Alexis riding her 2 wheeler while he still tottered around on training wheels, but he wasn't quite ready to give them up.  For a few days he consoled himself with the fact that his bike was bigger than Alexis' bike.  That soon wore off and he couldn't take it anymore.  Off came the training wheels.

It only took a few turns up and down the sidewalk, and now his bike has a new name.  "The 2 wheeler."    
And he's going, going, gone.  Way to go James!  We are proud of you.
