I like to move it, move it!

I've always believed that physical play is important for children (and adults, too!). Roughhousing is good for the heart... and good for the heart. I don't have an exercise routine (though I often think I should), but I often lay in the floor to roll around with my kids. Sasha loves to give "Running Jumping Hugs!" Whew, you better be ready for them! Sasha and Spencer love to chase each other through the house, which I always encourage and enjoy the giggling! Sometimes, you might even catch one of us larger people (Daddy, big sister or myself) taking chase.


We also have fun with impromptu kitchen dance parties! And when the weather is nicer, I really enjoy taking our entire family out for long walks in the park: treasure hunting!

How do you cultivate a habit of being physically active in your family?

  1. Oh that is so cute! My son used to run up to and hug random children at the park lol. We stopped him from doing that, but he's still very huggy with people we know!

    1. If you mention hugs, Spencer wants to hug everyone in a room - he needs to take turns. And whoever suggested the hugs (or kisses) is usually last! lol But then he makes the rounds again anyway.

  3. Thanks for this positive perspective on the movement that comes with just being a mommy! I tend to get down on myself for not finding time for conventional exercise, but your post reminds me that I really am active.

    1. Fetching & caring for our children makes for a bit of exercise, too, if you ask me! lol Too much mommy guilt in the world.

  6. Kai likes to pretend to tickle me and then when I retaliate, he runs away. He also play wrestles with my hubby which is great for burning energy.
