***This is not a sponsored post. I was sent products to review and to also giveaway. All opinions are my own and those shiny new wheels definitely belong to the twinions***
Watch out world! Clear the roads!
Mr Surfer had to go out and get the twinions a set of wheels (plus training ones, of course…)
And while we haven’t taken them out for a proper spin on the roads yet (Let’s just wait for my heart to physically prepare itself), we’re just letting them slowly ease into their new modes of transport.
For the longest time, they sat on their shiny new Malvern Stars in the middle of the lounge room whilst watching, what else? A Dinosaur Train DVD.
Me thinks that levels of patience will yet again be tested during this time of cycling discovery.
The whole concept of using their feet to push the pedals, to get the bike going either seems extremely foreign or just too much friggin’ hard work.
Just this morning in the kitchen, K-Bear sat on his MX-16 and was getting frustrated that it just wasn’t moving.
“Papa, I think my bike is broken. It needs new batteries. It needs new batteries, Papa” he concluded.
Ah, no kid. You need to get those little legs of yours moving. And trust me. The rate you run and keep me fit by chasing you and your brother constantly, I’m not going to say that often.
Anyway, as you can see, it’s all systems go in Chez Mama Grace.
I bet it’s the same at yours.
To help me cope with the twin ions transition from full speed to turbo, I was kindly given an awesome Panasonic laundry basket. Cool factor? It’s collapsible! Not only great for piles of stinky dino laundry but it stores really well when you’re not using it.
I also got to try out these great reusable pouches from Pouched. Great for making healthy smoothies for the twinions’ preschool lunches.
And woohoo! I have a basket and pouches to giveaway!
