Laughter is the Best Workout

I was working out to a DVD in the living room last weekend when Bear strolled through the room. The instructor in the video had her hands up in what she calls “athletic” stance, arms bent at the elbows, hands facing out from the hip.

Bear watched her for a moment, then asked me, “Is she pretending to have a remote in both hands?”

This is the same boy who will do crunches on the floor beside me, leaping up after about maybe 10 or so of them to yank up his shirt and check out his newfound, ripped washboard in the mirror. I get more of a workout from laughing with him than I do from any of my DVD’s.

I am endlessly trying to make sense of a world that has completely and unapologetically lost its mind.

    I love the things that kids say! I think we could learn to stop taking ourselves so seriously if only we could see the world through the eyes of a child again. – G

    Kids are absolutely great in that innocent belief in immediacy, are they not?

Don't be shy! Tell me how great I am. Or not. Share your feelings with the group.
