Wimpy Mama

Yesterday, I took my kids to the dance studio.  My daughter, of course, had the lessons.  My son had to come along for the ride.  And let me tell you, he absolutely hates sitting around!  So what did he do?  He went outside on the parking lot and started doing push-ups and sit ups.

"Bubba, what are you doing?" I asked.

"Exercising."

I guess that was pretty obvious.  "Okay.  Why are you exercising on the hard asphalt?"

"I'm trying to get everybody else to come out and exercise with me."

I looked at the kid.  "Bubba, nobody is going to want to come out and do sit ups and push-ups in the middle of a parking lot!"

I guess I was wrong.  Two seconds later, another little boy and his dad came out.  The boy got on the ground next to Bubba and started doing push-ups.

The dad and I just looked at each other and shook our heads.

"Mama, you should do push-ups and sit ups, too!"

"No thank you," I said.

My boy looked at his new friend and said. "My Mama is a wimp!"

So there you have it ladies and gentlemen.  I am now officially a wimp!

  4. Children are such a joy! They add excitement and wonder to your life! I simple adore children. To observe them and listen to the things they say is amazing! They bring something new to the world!

    Love to hear some of you music Sherry. Do you have recorded music for purchase?

    1. I don't have anything to purchase (yet), but if you'd like to hear me play, you can visit my website, www.sherryellis.org, and click on the videos.

      My kids are definitely a breath of sunshine!

  5. You tell that child that you gave birth to him and his sister. Women are not wimps.

    Love,

  11. LOL! I could never stand doing push-ups--I'd rather be bored to death, even as a kid. Go Bubba for exercising out of his own free will! :)

    1. I honestly don't know what inspired him to do sit ups and push-ups. I would've personally run laps around the lot.

  12. I'm laughing out loud here after reading this post. I can imagine Bubba being in a boot camp style fitness session leading the others. Not a fan of push ups either.

    1. Maybe that's where he got this idea - from his Daddy Navy drill sergeant!

  13. Maybe I should go out to the parking lot and start doing push-ups and situps. No one ever wants to exercise with me, so maybe that's the answer!
