Life is good.

Instead of going to the gym today I figured I would break out of the house with the kiddos and take advantage of some warmer temperatures. (high 30's)

I had my 7 year old on his bike and my 3 year old on his big wheel. It might be hard to imagine but my three year old can pick up some speed on that big wheel of his. I walked when he was moving slow and ran when he was movin fast. It was a pretty delightful 30 mins.

What I realized is that last summer I couldn't have done this. I would have been dying to keep up with a fast movin three year old. But today, I kept wishin he would keep it up. In fact, a few times I ran past him and tried to coax him during his slower moments.

I love moments like this:
When I realize, that I AM a better, more fun mom... 83 lbs lighter.

This is one of the reason's I opted for Lap-Band. So that I wouldn't miss out on life anymore. This summer I am going to try out one of my goals... I am going to slide down the slide at the park. I don't want to be the mom who just watches anymore. I want to enjoy this small moment in my life. When I have these beautiful little boys to run and play with.

Life is good.

Brrr! Did you say 30 degrees? What a great achievement. Your boys are helping you to make some wonderful memories. Made me think of my son when he was little and cruised around on his big wheel.
