I was washing dishes when a certain three foot tall individual ran past me. Five seconds later, he did it again. And again.
"Bubba," I said. "What are you doing?"
"Running!" he said whipping by.
"I can see that. But why are you running in circles around the house? That's a good way to get hurt."
"I need exercise."
Exercise? "Dude, if you wait until it stops raining, you can exercise all you want outside."
"But Mama, I have to fill in the chart."
"The exercise chart from school. We have to exercise for thirty minutes every day. And if I try to wait for it to stop raining, it might not ever stop. So I'm doing indoor exercise."
And off he went to run in circles for another twenty minutes while I sat and watched.
Boy of ideas and good ideas at that. He'll go far.ReplyDelete
Thanks for your comment, kind of you to do so.
If there's a will, there's a way!Delete
He made a commitment and did what it took to fulfill it. Good for Bubba.ReplyDelete
He should be most proud of himself!Delete
You have a very smart son. :)ReplyDelete
He's a genius!Delete
All of my son's games involve chasing each other in circles. He comes up with a new name every now and again but it's the same game. Part of me longs for the day when he'll run in circles by himself with me watching. Part of me knows when that happens I'll have to come up with some new exercise for myself.ReplyDelete
I used to have to chase him in circles. Now I run on a treadmill. I don't get nearly as dizzy!Delete
You can't argue with his stick-to-itiveness....he'd got to fill in that chart!! :)ReplyDelete
It's nice to see he can commit to getting something done!Delete
That works for me too, just walk round and round in circles and the exercise is done, don't even have to go outdoorsReplyDelete
Yeah. No sunscreen required!Delete
I think it should count for some kind of exercise that you watched someone else exercise. He is too cute!ReplyDelete
Yeah. I must've burned at least three calories doing it!Delete
Your son is so bright! I love his passion.ReplyDelete
It's called ingenuity!Delete
Oh my, that's too cute!ReplyDelete
Isn't he funny?Delete
Glad to hear that his school is promoting fitness.ReplyDelete
Yes, it is. I was kind of surprised to see the chart, but I think it's a really good thing.Delete
