The little one fell off on the first try - his bike landed on him and he got tangled up. There were tears and then I asked "do you want to have another go or leave it?" and he wanted to do it again.
I wouldn't have had another go but he did, and the big one? He kept having a go and kept to the side and quietly encouraged without bossing. He let it be about someone else when they needed it to be.
They are growing into nice people these boys and I am blessed by the characteristics I see in them that I lack myself.
It's a 2 way street this watching and imitating thing.
love you more than a dose of perseverance xxxx
