Grandchildren as Exercise Incentives

Sunday, August 28, 2016

Did you know that having grandchildren can cause exercise? Anyone who has had anything to do with toddlers will probably agree. Being with my daughter and her two girls, age 3 years and 16 months, has made me aware of all the incidental exercise we adults are performing. In this house, Granny, Poppy, Mum and Dad are all constantly fetching, carrying, dancing, lifting, sitting on the floor, reaching for the stars, laughing and singing. Grandchildren also love walks to the park and playing on the equipment there, since Granny, Poppy and Mum are available as safety checkers and handy as lifters. Walking home with my granddaughter's hand in mine, because she wanted to walk with me, is one of the sweetest memories I will treasure. ❤ Yes, grandchildren are great exercise incentives. I recommend everyone has at least one! 😃

    I totally agree! And that continues even as they get older. My 13 year old twin granddaughters had me moving this summer while visiting - walking, swimming, Wii dance, etc etc. You name it, they did it! I lost weight and felt fitter after 7 weeks. I can totally relate to the feeling of holding the hand of a grandchild as you walk. One of life's blessings! Enjoy them, they grow up fast!

    Mine keep me hopping. I love it. When I'm not chasing the babies, I'm going to soccer games with the older ones.

    Grandchildren are a blessing.

    Congratulations on yours.
