I'm throwing this crazy or maybe not so crazy thought out here on the internet for a little feedback and ideas from all you oh so wise readers.
Jack has fabulous balance. I think anyone who can stand on a green basketball while lightly holding onto a table with one hand that does not grip well has fabulous balance.
He absolutely loves to ride his tricycle. He is a big kid and will soon outgrow his trike. I think he is ready for a bike. He doesn't really like riding his skuut bike (it's one of those walking/training bikes--there's no pedals or chains). I think the problem is that Jack has always preferred to have something against his back when he rides.
He's the same way with swinging. He loves to swing but only if there is a back or it's a big porch swing. You can lay a porch swing flat and he'll still swing on it.
I think he likes the feeling of support. Or maybe he actually needs that bit of extra support to balance out his still large for his body size head when sitting.
I don't know.
Anyway, I am wondering if there is some way to put a tricycle type seat (you know that has a back on it) on a bicycle. Or does it sound like I just need to leave him alone and let him enjoy his trike?
I can't wait to hear your thoughts.
