I have stumbled onto a new exercise program. It’s called “my toddler loves to dance, and refuses to dance alone.
“We got a new CD last week, and Max loves to shake his little diapered booty to the funky beat. When his siblings are home, they will dance with him, but this morning he wanted to dance, and the older kids are all in school, so I got to be his dance partner. He doesn’t let up, the second I tried to sneak into the kitchen to get a drink of water (I was working up a sweat) Max yells “Mom! Come back! Dance wif me”
Me: “Max, I need to get a drink, I’m tired”
Max: “No Mom, Preeeeease come back and dance wif me! Now!”
How can I refuse that?
The added bonus is that he likes it when I pick him up and spin him around in the air. That could be considered weight training couldn’t it?
I need to tell you, it’s much more fun than walking on the treadmill.
