Taking a Walk

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

My son and husband took our beagle for a walk around the neighborhood. As they came into the house afterward, my son commented, “You know Daddy, that would have been a lot quicker if we took your car!”

My daughter was helping me keep count while I was exercising. When I finished I said, “Phew, I need a drink of water.” Madisyn replied, “Phew, I need a drink from counting!”

Family Fitness

One evening, my husband and I wanted to go for a bike ride, but neither of our sons wanted to join us. I joked that the two of us would go alone and told my 4-year-old to watch his brother. Ben exclaimed, “You can’t do that! I’m naughty when no one is watching!”

Practice Makes Perfect

Tuesday, May 13th, 2014

My husband and I agreed that our son needed to do a little extra homework when he arrived home from school each night. When we told him he was going to do some exercises, he replied, “I want to do them on the treadmill.”

Dancing Queen

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

My younger daughter came with me to watch my older daughter at her hip-hop dance class. An older woman saw Alyssa observing and asked, “Do you dance too? What kind of dancing do you do?” Alyssa enthusiastically responded, “I do hippopotamus too!”
