Mommies do a lot of lifting. They lift babies, toddlers, bicycles, and an awful lot of groceries. My eight- year- old daughter has witnessed the heavy lifting that I have done. She decided it was her turn to do some heavy lifting.
"Mommy, I bet I can lift you up," she said.
"I don't know about that," I said.
"Let me try."
I really didn't expect her to do more than knock me off balance a little bit.
Would you believe she actually lifted me off of the ground? I couldn't believe it! It must be all of those tumbling classes that she's been taking!
