Sorry everybody for the lack of posts this week. I’ve spent the past couple days in a class for work (and homework for the class at night) and just haven’t had the time to write the post I want to write (based on the rules for time travelers I tweeted about the other day). That post will come soon, I promise.
In the meantime, a story. I’ve come to realize that we are setting an example for our kids all the time, whether we think we are or not. Case in point. I have entered an exercise challenge at work in which I do x many pushups 3 days a week, y many situps 3 days a week, and z parallel bar dips 3 days a week. (note that in this example x, y, and z all equal 1 million). I’ve created a little chart to keep track of my progress. Well, as I was getting dinner ready tonight, guess who had started a chart of her own? Yep, my 3 1/2 year old daughter.
Let’s hope she keeps picking up my good examples, such as exercise and ignores my bad example, such as my tendency to leave my dirty socks under the kitchen table.
