Thought of the day…
How come my back hurts more now than when I actually worked out in a gym?
Perhaps from lifting 50+ pounds toddler twins, crawling on the floor as a dinosaur or random farm animal, carrying 11 pounds of laundry up and down the stairs, washing every children’s colorful plate, cup, and utensil daily. PLUS running through the house to keep Twin A out of the toilet water, logging my school aged child and myself in and out of Google Classroom, Zoom, MS Teams, WebEX meetings or getting a solid 4 hours of sleep per night.
How do your children help you workout?
Hello and welcome to Mommy Scoreboard. It’s been several years but I remember starting my college application essay with the sentence, “You can always find me with a pen in one hand a basketball in the other.” I enjoy writing but the sport of basketball has been my ultimate joy. Fast forward and now I am the proud parent of three children, a happily married woman and an accomplished recreational basketball player. If I had to update my essay sentence it would read, “You can always find me with a pen, a basketball, a kid or two, a mobile device, a skillet, random toy part, a sippy cup, baby wipes, hand sanitizer and face masks in my hands”…WOW, have times gotten better!
