The last two nights I've gone to the gym after the girls went down to bed. It has worked out pretty nicely. Although by the end of the day, I more want to curl up in bed or in front of the tv, not go to the gym. Tonight I have a PAMOM meeting and so I won't be able to work out. So my Mom watched the girls for me this morning so I could go to the gym today. The gym has a childcare facility, but we are trying to put off taking them there until after cold season, under the advisement of our peditrician. So, this morning, I got the girls dressed, fed and loaded in the car and took them over to Mom's house. Sometimes getting them ready feels like a workout all on it's own! Several times a day, I carry both girls at once. That means I'm lifting 40lbs of weight! I squat down and put both girls on my legs. Then with a one-two-three I hoist us all up, using my leg muscles. Who needs a gym membership??
So, the girls did great at Nana's house. I don't think they even missed me. Although when I came to pick them up, Maddie was ready to leave. She grabbed her hat and my keys and was ready to go home. It was cute. I put her in the car first and Izzie waved goodbye to us. She was ready to just stay at Nana's house.
