For weeks now, Meredith has been asking for a princess bike. A big girl bike.
Christmas, I told her. Our garage is full of well-loved, oft played-with wheeled objects. Push cars, a Cozy Coupe, a tricycle, a scooter. There are plenty of other options until Christmas.
But then we drove by a garage sale and there was a princess bike just sitting there. A princess bike for only five dollars and it needed a home.
So our little princess got her princess bike and now she hardly seems little at all.
