Those Darn Kids

Those Darn Kids

March 12, 2008

Tonight I was on the phone with Susan when my daughter came running into the room asking me a question.

“Sure” I answered.

“Did she just ask you if she could have blueberry vodka?” Susan asked.

“No, she asked if she they could watch Denise Austin’s Daily Work-out.”


“My little kids all like to work out to it. I don’t question why. I am hoping to get in shape vicariously through them.”

“Is it working?”

“Not so much. But the kids do look too cute doing it.”


A week or so ago Miles fell and scraped his elbow. He has been wearing a band-aid on it ever since even though it is mostly healed now.

Today the bandaid was falling off so I removed it, while he screamed like I was chopping his arm off with a dull plastic knife. I showed him how it was healed and that it shouldn’t hurt anymore.

He went to throw the band-aid away and said, to no one in particular, “It’s okay. It not hurt. It is just my imagination.”

I love that little kid.

    i am totally going to tell myself, and no one in particular, the exact same thing whenever someone’s tryin’ to bring me down. seriously.

  7. Becky says:

    …My brother and I definitely would use my mom’s work-out tape. First we’d watch Barney’s Birthday tape and then the only thing left to do would be to work out with the blonde lady in leggings.

  8. Jennielynn says:

    The Denise Austin thing is hilarious. Missy Hoohaw hates my workout DVD (could be the Richard Simmons factor) SHe yells at me when I put it in, “No dance, Mama. NO DANCE!”

    Is it weird that I love that little kid too?

    Oh man, I think I love that little kid too.

    And I cannot do Pilates without a crew of littles swinging their short legs in the air along with me. The two-year-old is especially cute.

  11. Keri says:

    “Hey guys” Hearing about your kids makes me want to have 7 kids, although I’m still way to young for 7 just yet.
