I missed you my lil’ blogger bff’s. I have a new found respect for all of you woman out there with children. All of you woman that have kids and train……um, how do you do it, I AM EXHAUSTED and after I push publish, I am taking my second nap of the day. Good thing it is SUNDAY rest day…….but that also means it is almost MONDAY SPEED DAY. I am scurred.
How to become the favorite aunt/uncle or how to make kids really love you.
Let them play ipod games whenever they want.
Share your lemonade with them. I am pretty sure we went through at least five glasses.
Take them to their favorite restaurant (Del Taco) and let them play on the play place for hours.
You may also do as I did and create challenges for them. For example: Keep lemonade in their mouth, one eye closed and crossed fingers as they go through the entire obstacle course and slides in less than 20 seconds. I made them gurgle at the end to prove that they didn’t swallow their drink.
When you get home from Del Taco whip up a batch of cookies with them and eat half the dough yourself explaining that adults are immune to salmonella poisoning and that is why it is okay for me to eat large amounts of cookie dough.
Hot Chocolate after a million cookies? Sure why not….heck, add double the amount of the chocolate mix and put in as many marshmallows as your little heart desires.
Let them stay up until 11:30 p.m. with you watching Toy Story 3 and Jimmy Newtron and then join you in bed right when they wake up in the morning to hang out and use your as a chair.
Last but not least, chocolate chip pancakes for breakfast are a must.
I really am more tired than I am after LONG runs and even marathons:) It was so much fun and it was (sorry, time for mushy gushy grossness) especially awesome to see Billy in action….he is going to be an amazing Dad someday (that is after I win a few marathons:)
Did you babysit a lot growing up?
-I used to babysit almost every weekend from the years of 12-16. I was also a nanny for a few years for two kids in elementary school and that was SO MUCH FUN!!!
Do you have neices of nephews?
-Yep, 13 of them!
As you know I did weights yesterday and I AM SORE!!! How many times a week do you feel like you are sore from your workouts?
-I feel like everyday I am at least a little sore somewhere, I don’t remember not feeling sore anywhere. Let’s just hope that means I am gaining muscle:)
If you are a mom and you run/workout……HOW DO YOU DO IT???
