For the record, I hit skip back on the DVD after filming the girls, so I could finish my own workout. Grace was really into the video, but Sophie was pre-occupied cutting up Christmas ribbon.
Some days they like to play on the floor while I’m exercising. But being the stinkers that they are, won’t let me use their mats even if they don’t need them. Often, I try to sneak a corner when it’s time for burpies or ab work, but they always make a fuss. I love the Manduka (my beloved yoga mat) too much to jump on it in my sneakers, but I really don’t mind being shooed away. The entire activity is a bonding experience and it’s the one part of being a mom that I’m certain I’m doing right.
