On Your Mark

Q-ster was pretending to race around the living room, so I taught him the positions for “On your mark, get set, go!” He begged me to call it over and over, which I was happy to do, because he spent a good forty-five minutes running and running.

Please tell me that I’m not the only one who had thought wickedly that teaching a new concept dovetailed nicely with making sure a preschooler got a good night’s sleep.

Sometimes we all come out winners when these games are over. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, not anything at all.

Not wicked! Exercise = all good!

I think you were using the time-honored mother wisdom most moms have and use when needed.
