I have to admit – my life is pretty boring (rather, even MORE boring) when there a lack of running (or working out in general) and I have a cold.
I did manage to squeeze in a few fun events, but I mostly sat on the couch, drank peppermint tea, and whined about wanting to rip my sinuses out of my head. It’s really taken until today to feel even 85% back to normal. When “they” say not to run with a head cold? They mean it. Not that I would have skipped my marathon because of it. <—bad example
Thursday night we went to a performance at B’s school for Kindergarten and 1st grade. It was…fun for the kids.
So, it was cute seeing the kids sing – but there were SO many people (8 Kindergarten classes, 7 1st grade class = lots of parents). Crowds are not my thing.
Last night I got to hang out with a few adorable babies (which, definitely did not help my baby fever) and my friend Kari (visiting from Pittsburgh). (PS – I am so fug in all of these pictures)
I love hanging with my friends. Sadly, we don’t get together as much as we used to – and I blame Kari because she moved away 🙁
And today after spinning, the kids did a little bike riding of their own…
Technically, L just stood there – but B rode his bike. He struggles with starting to pedal. I swear I have tried everything. He is stubborn (gee, I wonder where he gets that from?) and we can’t work on taking the training wheels off (which he desperately wants to do) until he can actually start pedaling on his own.
It’s a GORGEOUS weekend, so we are going out again after nap time (which is going on right now). So ANY advice on teaching a kid how to ride a bike would be appreciated.
Sometimes, I feel like such a failure when it comes to parenting. Who knew that teaching a kid to rid a bike would be so difficult?
