Emotional Parenting Moment While Bike Shopping

This week we stopped by Toys "R" Us and spent some time checking out all the cool toys. As we wander around we made our way to the bikes area. I decided to see what size bike my son would fit. This summer he'll turn 6 years old and it's time for him to learn (way past time really).

Bike Shopping

At first I thought we could try the 12 - 14 bike frames but the guy helping in the store politely (but firmly) suggested we start with 16 bike frames. At first I thought he was crazy. That was way too big for my son. Wasn't it?

Turns out it wasn't.

As we asked my son to stretch his legs out to see his leg reach.....I nearly cried. WHEN did he get so tall.....and grown?!

As I struggled with my feeling, my son was on the bike and ready to pedal off into the sunset. After taking a deep breathe, I decided the actual bike purchase will have to wait a few more days. I need time to get my budget.....and emotions.....ready.
