Amelia's New Bike
Amelia's New Bike
Amelia was so excited to learn that she was one of the winners from the bike raffle at Dr. Wegner's office that she wanted to go over and pick out her new bike immediately (it probably didn't help that the weather was unseasonably warm that week and perfect for bike riding). So she, her younger brother and I piled in the car and drove over to Oak Park Cyclery to check out her options. We got out of the car and were making our way to the entrance when she saw it! Her new bike! It had Amelia written all over it. It was purple, pink and white with butterflies on the seat and it was just her size!
But as we reached the entrance, we found out they were closed that day. Amelia was heartbroken and afraid that her bike would be gone by the time we made it back to the bike shop. We made our way back to the bike shop later that week and again hopped out of the car and made our way to the entrance of the bike shop. She was ecstatic to see that her bike was still in the front window. We went over to the area where the kids bikes were located and waited for someone to come and help us (they were quite busy that day!). I told her to take a look at all of the bikes to make sure that the one in the window was the one she really wanted. An employee eventually came over to help us and pointed out all of the bikes that were available in Amelia's size. The employee did not mention the one in the window and Amelia started to get this worried look on her face because the bikes that the employee pointed out were not fancy like the one she saw in the window. So, after the employee showed us all of the available bikes, I asked if the bike in the window was also a choice and…. much to Amelia's relief, it was! Amelia got this huge smile on her face when the employee said she could have that one. The employee brought it down from the window and had her sit on it to make sure it was the right size. Amelia was beaming with excitement! We took the bike outside and loaded it up in the car to take it home. You can imagine what Amelia wanted to do as soon as we got home with the bike - ride it! Dr. Wegner, Amelia and her dad and I would like to thank you for this very special gift. She loves her new bike and wants to ride it all the time. She already likes coming to the dentist, but this makes her like coming to the dentist even more now!
