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"
