Fresh Air…

I had the boys, Jack and Bear, today, all day. My strategy is the same as the one I used on my own boys when they were little: take them outside and run ’em.

Fresh air, lots of movement, and by 2:00 or 3:00 I can do what I need to do and they will be too tired to complain. The strategy still works!

I think we walked 3 1/2 miles. That’s pretty impressive for Bear, at 4 1/2. He only sat down at the end, and he did get back up because my days of lugging a kid that size are over. The first park had a play structure, the second park had a lake that we walked around.

The only downside is that I’m kind of tired too… but they are more tired! Judy, their other grandmother, has them overnight. I guess I’ll find out if I did my job tomorrow. My hope is that they go to bed and sleep soundly all night long.

Tomorrow, Steve and I are taking them out hiking again. Outside. I like it way better than screens.

  1. You did great…… and my daughter is learning with her 17 month old to take her where she can run around and scream and she takes a great nap. 🙂

  2. My grandkids are 16 & 13 now. Getting them off the screens is impossible. If we do get them off, they are too grumpy about it to bear being around them. Screens are good sometimes, but not all the time!

  3. Yay. SOCKS!!!!! It’s getting cooler here in Texas, so time to put away the flip flops and dig out the socks. Thanks Becky for your chances at giveaways.
