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! 😃
