Working out with kids!!! If you’re anything like me it doesn’t always go like the cute videos you see online.

Let’s talk about how my workout today actually went…

  1. First, despite my repeated warnings about the dangers of bringing kids to the gym, Lilah insisted on bringing ALL of her children (2 dolls, 1 Elsa, and a kitten to be exact) onto the mat with us.
  2. She was seriously offended when I suggested we workout without said-babies.
  3. She insisted on using the center of the mat and not equal sharing.
  4. She insisted I get off the mat so she could show me how to do it.
  5. Finally, I just gave up and handed off the mat.. because.. apparently sister needs to get her cobra on.

Of course, I adored every second so I guess I’ll count today as a win and just be happy I didn’t have to sweat too bad. 🙂

    This is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen!!! I have been trying to think of different little workout routines to do with my littles, so far dancing. They just love dancing. As long as we are all being active, right?? 🙂 I love the photos though! Such sweet memories!!!

    Oh my goodness, these pictures of your daughter doing yoga are so adorable. My son has taken a huge interests into my yoga practice suddenly so I’m hoping that he learns to love it too.

    This is the absolute sweetest! I love when my 4-year-old son starts doing yoga or stretching on his own. He used a water bottle as a foam roller yesterday. Hahaha! Kids are like sponges and you’re helping create the best habits and memories for your daughter.
