Strength training, toddler style

Dear Little Ring,

Remember those days when you were just a lump? The days when you’d lie there keeping mama company for her strength training? The days when all you could do was lift up and try to grab my necklace as I struggled through pushups or planked for a minute over top of you? The days when you’d roll from side to side, lift your arms, lift your legs, but essentially still just a little lump? Remember those?

Oh how long ago those days were…

Dear Little Ring,

While I do so very, very, very much LOVE our daily snuggles, during strength training? Really? During pushups with your much larger lump directly under me? Really? During planks, clam shells, squats and lunges – Really???

Yes mama, really! (Note: He was totally lifting his legs just like I was AND reading his book – little show off! 😉 )
