Bea and mom took a Sunday stroll around the neighborhood with the new bike carrier we bought this year. Only a few tears and a moment of panic as Bea got strapped into the harness. But then she noticed her blankie, Barney doll and bag of cookies, and suddenly everything was OK. The weather was perfect, and I would have liked to have gone for a longer ride, but I didn't want to push my luck. I'm sure she'll get more comfortable with her new wheels, the more we go out. And it doesn't hurt to bring along cookies.
