Oh. My. Legs.

Ok... here's the new workout for fab calves and thighs...
I think I'm gonna make a workout video, patent it, and become rich!!!

Take your kids to an older park with nothing but equipment that would probably be condemmed if actually looked at closely. (You know, because it's the "old" metal stuff that WE used to play on!) Place your kid on one end of the METAL SEE-SAW and yourself and baby on the other end...

Now, with all of your might, JUMP to get your much-heavier-than-the-munchkin-on-the-other-end self up in the air and your child down to Earth.


After several repititions, realize that you're going to regret this BIG TIME in the morning, BUT... keep doing it because both your baby and your "big kid" are giggling like crazy and loving every minute in the sunshine with you - their Mommy.

Wake up the next morning and realize - Oh. My. Legs. THEY HURT LIKE H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS!!!

Holy crap am I out of shape.

I think we need to go it again!

Haha, I hear ya on that one! One of the schools I sub at has a see-saw. Only, it's a "new" one that has a spring in the middle I guess. Anyway, the ECH kids can't even reach to get on so we push each side down for them to get on and then push it to go up and down. Killer on the arms...yeah, they don't get to play on that much!
