It has been a VERY long time since I have decided to participate in a contest over at I Heart Faces. The theme this week is Vrroom Vrrrom. Being that it is getting close to Tyler's birthday, I have been looking back over some photos of my grown up baby.
So I am entering one of his photos from last year that I took. Nothing beats a little boy and his Radio Flyer!
A little bit of *his* story. Tyler has Cerebral Palsy. We bought this bike so he could learn to ride and participate in the neighborhood. What we didn't know was that riding a "normal" bike would prove to be to difficult. Tyler needs an adaptive tricycle. He doesn't have one just yet because even with a discount of 50% the bike out of pocket is our cost. The bike is $700. Tyler can't keep his feet on the pedals on this bike even with adaptations but we REALLY wanted him to have a * normal* chance at what the other kids were doing. He was so happy as we pushed him around the neighborhood. He was ringing his bell and the other kids would take turns pushing him.
Some day I will get him a Rifton bike but for now we settle on looking back a year ago to a time when we innocently thought for a brief moment we were like everyone else!
