I was able to get my exercise done this morning without any fighting or interruptions from them. Yay!
I know it can be difficult to get exercise done when kids are smaller, Dad's at work and you're trying to finish up, but "Susie's got my dolly! " or "The movie's done, MOM!!!" or who knows what. Even older kids, like mine, can have their arguments that require parental intervention and that can wreck a workout. Many moms get up to exercise at wee hours of the morning to avoid this, but I'm not one of them.
So, today I'm grateful that my 13-year-old twin daughters and my 11-year-old son managed to get along and go about their business while Mommy kept to her exercise.
Thank you, guys!
