Last spring, I got a bike.
Ok, that’s not exactly true…last spring, I decided to shape up a little by re-learning to ride a bike. I grabbed one out of the garage, and Hubby had it serviced down at the local bike shop. We bought an indoor training stand (last year was the Winter of Endless Snow) and I set to work.
Naturally, because I feel a need to publicly share my humiliation, I also started a new blog so I could complain to a wider audience. It – and the exercise – lasted a whole six weeks…
So, where am I going with this, you may be wondering?
Most of you know by now about the recent addition to our household… She’s making improvements daily, thanks for asking, but it’s going to be a long slog. While that will change the tone of things slightly here at My Little Corner, I don’t want it to become the central theme.
Not everyone wants to read about potty training. I do know this.
That said, I really need a place to write about this situation. So, I’m resurrecting The Big Bike Experiment (likeridinga.wordpress.com). The title will stay…there are other things in life that should be “just like riding a bike,” and I’m hoping that parenting a two-year-old is one of them.
It won’t be filled with photos. There will be no tags or catagories for the search engines to grab. I’ll warn you: There will be ranting, and most likely some swearing. There will be uncharitable comments and inappropriate humor. There will almost certainly be poop.
But, with any luck, there will also be celebration and joy. I’m inviting all of you who read this to join me in our story – and I understand so completely those who aren’t into poop. The first post is up. More will follow…
What does that mean we’ll be doing around here?
Lots of cooking and gardening, of course! With perhaps a child-friendly bent…
Now, where are we going to build a pumpkin patch?
