A few months ago, we taught Henry to ride a bike. He had mastered a balance bike before turning 2 and flew around the neighborhood on those tiny wheels. We thought that putting him on a pedal bike would allow him to keep up with us on family bike rides.
Where were we? Oh, yes, I’m still jobless and now spending every spare moment studying for the GRE. If Amy can paint eight walls in 47 minutes, and Tina can paint 13 walls in 34 minutes, how long does it take the pair to paint 16 walls? Stumped?
Over winter break, we helped Henry quit his pacifier habit. He had been addicted to the pacifier since infancy, when we foisted it upon him until he learned to like it. He was a calmer baby than Eleanor, and I’m still not sure whether that can be credited to the personality or the paci.
