This past Friday, my son Matthew and his girlfriend made me a grandma. Athens Omero Carboni,weighing in at 6lbs13 oz made his way into the world.
And boy am I excited!
The bike world has changed in the twenty years since I have a little one of my own. Today there are the bike trailors, tag-alongs and every imaginable accessory for getting kids around on bikes. I am ready for it. I can't wait to be taking little Athens to all sorts of places by bike.
My own children did not take to the idea of bike riding. But I know I can get Athens, the first of my grandchildren, to take to it. Just let me have the chance!
