Dreaming of Orange Bikes

LJ has a fascination with the color orange. He loves all things orange. Over the winter, the local bike shop about 2 blocks away had an orange bike in the window. LJ fell in love with this bike. He talked about it often and frequently requested to go by the shop to see if "his bike" was in the window. He wondered how much it cost, how long he would need to save his birthday money to be able to get the bike and when he would be able to ride it. It soon became clear that this was not a passing fad or interest but in fact something he believes he will own some day. Still months later he reminds me that his bike is at the bike shop waiting for him. I don't have the heart to tell him that we have never bought a new bike for any of the kids, that we have found awesome used bikes and that shiny new orange one will likely not find itself parked in our garage. It also doesn't cross his mind that he has never learned to ride a two wheeler yet due to some visual field complications due to his visual aura migraines. Perhaps this will be his year to learn to ride as he seems to be managing his migraines so much better. He also reminds me (in case I forgot) that he "has a fascination with orange." Tonight while I was out walking the dog, I walked by the shop. LJ's bike is still waiting for him. Keep dreaming buddy. Maybe someday your wish will come true.
