She Did It! #SSAmazingAchievements

By | September 30, 2014

The title says it all, or it could have been “back on the saddle”…but anyway..

After D’s tumble off her trike and into the road on Friday, it was going to be a challenge to get her back onto the trike.

It is not an understatement to say that she “hated it”, as she frequently told me on the way home, D with her very bruised and bloodied nose.

This was her on Saturday, resembling a mini, cuter Ant person but smiling through the pain.

Fast forward three days and this has happened:

Helmet back on, nose healing (although we do have an X-ray to get to tomorrow, just to double-check there’s no fractures), bruises fading and she was ready to ride again:

We’ve talked about the corner where it happened and how we’ll walk that in future.

Whilst she isn’t as over the moon about her trike as she was before Friday, she’s overcome those anxieties, she’s got back on and realised that she’s not necessarily going to have another fall and ….well, she did it!

Mega proud of D. Mega proud.

Aww thank you. Very pleased that she got back on there and recognised that it was fun.
She loves her pink clothes, as you can tell, years of her not being fussed about what she wore to make up for 🙂 x

Fantastic. Getting back on again is tough, but they do always say the sooner the better. So pleased that she has managed it x

Thanks, I was off that opinion too, it needed to happen sooner rather than later 🙂

Oh I’m so pleased for you that she didn’t give up and got back into the saddle (pardon the pun!) And you can just feel the proudness ozzing from you. Well done for helping D get over, both her physical and mental’ hurdles. D’s injuries do look rather painful. Well done everyone for the perseverance xx

Thanks, yes they were as horrible as they looked! Much, much better now, both physically and emotionally x

I’m so glad she got back on and overcome the anxiety of the fall. So glad that she is healing. I’m sure she will love the trike again, in time!

Thanks for linking up with Small Steps Amazing Achievements :0)

Thanks, she loved her trike before the fall and she’s been very lucky with the injuries not being worse. Nose still tender but so much better 🙂

It’s really good to hear that, despite the fall, she has got back on the trike and given it another go!
