Since our son had his first bicycle ride in Baguio last February, the idea of owning a bike never left him. That was what he wanted as gift from his Dad when he finished Kinder 2 with flying colors. He received the Gold Medal for General Academic Excellence during their culminating activity last March, which means he’s No. 1 in all Kinder 2. He also received 4 gold and 2 silver academic medals and 1 gold medal for Perfect Attendance. He really deserved a reward for doing well in school.


Our young man’s dream bike!

Until now, however, we still haven’t bought the bike that he likes because of the following reasons: First, we live in a small condo unit that has no space for biking. There’s a playground, though, at the 39th floor of the building, but he doesn’t like going up there. Second, we’re protecting his left hip bone. He was diagnosed with Perthes’ disease last year which caused his left hip bone to collapse. He was forbidden to run, jump and have P.E. for one year.

During our follow-up check-up last month, his bone doctor said my son’s left hip bone is showing signs of healing, but he said it will take one more year for it to fully heal. Despite this glimmer of hope, we still do not want him to put added pressure in his left hip bone as a result of frequent biking, so it might take a while before he would get his wish. For now, he will have to do with occasional biking at Quezon Memorial Circle or anywhere with bikes for hire.

  1. I’m sure that in time his hip will be fully healed and you need not worry about him riding a bike. And I’m sure Justin understands why he can’t have a bike at home.

  2. bike is one my little man’s fave, too. even when he does not know how to ride yet, he simply enjoys mounting the bike + going around in circles in the garage!

    occasional biking sounds good enough. i bet Justin will understand that he has to be careful while waiting for his hip to fully heal!

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
