  • We've been telling him for a while, me and his dad: "You DO know how to ride a bike, we are not really holding it for you".
    He's been saying "But I don't, I don't know how to turn".
    Today I convinced him: "Just try for one meter by yourself".
    He did. And realized we were right. He could do it. For how many meters he wanted.
    "You see!" I said.
    "I still can't turn", he said.
    "OK, just try that corner" I said.
    He did. And realized he could do that too.
    "Today is the day I learned how to ride a bike" he said.
    "No, you've been able to for a few weeks, actually, you just didn't believe it" I said.
    "No, I learned TODAY", he said.
    "OK. Look my way"
    "I'm taking a photo to post on Facebook"
    "What's it gonna say?" he asked.
    "Today, August 1, 2013, Folke learned how to ride a bike"
