I got up this morning at 7:30 AM to go walking. As I was getting ready to leave, Elliott hopped out of bed and decided he would go with me. Before we could get out the door, Emmett decided the same thing.
I don’t mind when my kids come with me, but it does slow the process down, and they often won’t finish.
Many times there are sensory related problems that interfere with them walking. Things like their shoes feel funny or clothes itch. Inevitably, I won’t get my three miles in, but it’s also essential that they get out as well.
It’s just one of the sacrifices we make as parents. While I’m losing some distance and intensity, I’m gaining some time with my kids. 🙂
