Riding a bike or the lack there of!!!!

Ok, so I am just wanting to know if there are other mother's out there with this problem or if it is a family trait? Now, I know from this picture that it looks as if my daughter can ride a bike right. WRONG!!!! For over a year not I have been trying desperatly to teach her how to peddle a bike and for some reason she just can't do it. I feel horrible because I will take her out to "ride" her bike and I end up so frusterated because she will push herself along with her feet and tell me "Look Mom I am doing it!!!" And she isn't!!!!! I have tried everything I can think of to teach her but to know avail. What am I doing wrong? What am I not understanding? Why is it that my daughter could count to 20 before she was 2 but she can't figure some of the easiest things out like peddling a bike and blowing her nose. I laugh because it is just so funny to me. She is so smart but I have a hard time teaching her certain things and I don't know if it is just me or if it is normal. So please tell me am I the only one here?

She really loves her Elmo bike and it brightens up her day so much when we take it outside for her to "ride".
This is how she really rides her bike!!!! It is so funny.

Juliana I love you!!!!!

Better late than never

Well, Valentines day came and went and I didn't say anything at all. That is because we meant to celebrate it and then we really didn't. We somehow just skipped past our normal family tradition of chocolate fondue because I wasn't feeling well and we were planning on doing it on the weekend and then it just kind of got swept under the rug. I am kind of sad because it is the only time of year that we do chocolate fondue. Anyway, we are not the "Killers of Love" or anything it is just that we have a lot on our plates right now. I will have to tell you more about that in another post. But, I thought that I would show the little bit that our family did do for our Valentines fun!!!!

This is what I made as Juliana's little Valentines that she gave out to her friends. They are felt fortune cookies. I thought that they turned out really cute in the end.

This was our dinner. Chocolate chip heart pancakes that I didn't have to make. What could be better than that?

Juliana absolutely loves pancakes and add in the sugar rush of the chocolate chips and the syrup and she was in seventh heaven.

Don't I have a great husband. Look past the mess on the counters and notice that I am being completely pampered by Mike. That is the best thing ever...yummy bacon.
