Kira Gets Her Way

This blog has started me organizing all my pictures. It seems like it will take forever, but I'm finding some good stuff that's reminding me of funny stories. This picture was taken when Kira was five and she decided to teach herself to ride her bike with no training wheels. While I was taking the training wheels off, she got her hockey helmet, (you know, just in case) and then she started. She isn't a person with a lot of patience and perseverance so luckily she was able to ride in just a few minutes. Then she decided that she needed to be able to turn around at the end of the driveway. She couldn't do it. She tried and tried, but couldn't make a sharp enough turn and she kept running off into the yard. She was inconsolable, I mean crying so hard that she was almost hyperventilating and her face was beet red. I finally convinced her to take a break, I said, "Do you want to come in the house and get a drink and cool off? What do you think would help you relax?" To which she said, through blubbering tears, "How about an accordion?"

Here's her at Christmas later that year.


I would love your comments.
