You Should Skip

Ughh another rainy day here on The Avenue and I woke up with a headache, thank goodness he left for work a few minutes ago. Ha, I crack me up. No really I woke up with a killer headache and I was GRUMPY!

Then I read this, more specifically this part "You should skip. You might like it." Right there my attitude changed, I couldn't be grumpy anymore. I envisioned TOF waking up in an hour or so ready for the world. At least the world according to TOF.

TOF's world is seldom grumpy, the child is always happy. He rarely cried as an infant. He was and is surrounded by people who love him. He wakes up and immediately starts his negotiations. Today he walked over to the fridge and pulled out chocolate pudding and a gallon of milk. "No TOF, chocolate pudding is for snack this afternoon, not breakfast. Let's have a waffle and sausages instead." "Ok Mema." Oh if only all negotiations went this smoothly. My work would be child's play, wait it is.

So today we will dance and sing off key. We'll make a craft and color some. If the rain lets up, we'll head outside for a few minutes, fresh air is good for you, even cold fresh air. We'll skip too, because it's fun. You should try it sometime!

I decorated a feather with my son last night (it was required by his daycare) and i wanted to shoot myself. My kid is hyped out of his mind. He couldn't sit still for 2 seconds. I told his teacher I don't know how they do it.

Sounds like you and TOF will be having tons of fun! Wish I wasn't stuck at work.....

megryansmom...valuable lesson! The part of I love most when visiting my grandgirls, is we dance and spin. Amazing to watch my daughter, dance with her daughters! It takes me back to the days when my adult-children were tots and we would spend so much time dancing in the kitchen!
I could not agree with you more...shake it off, skip it away!
Life is good!

I suggest adding (when the weather allows) a trip to a public playground for a ride on the swings. There's nothing like the feeling of pumping your legs and swinging through the air, wind in your face, to get you feeling young again.

It's a little secret of mine that I do when I'm feeling blue, and it works - every time.

You seemed a bit down yesterday. Hope your better. I know of the 'nasty headaches'. They are mean.

I would rather have chocolate pudding for breakfast myself. But that may be why I weigh so much.

This is great!
I believe I WILL skip for a while!

TOF sounds like a good skipping partner!

What a great post! I love the idea of skipping, but I can't do it - I'm getting too clumbsy or old for skipping. I think it is old - ugh!

Have a good evening - Kellan

It IS hard to be grumpy while skipping. I think I need to skip a few laps through my house. LOL It's just not been a great day thus far.
