Yes. My girls love doing yoga with me and are actually very good at it and flexible.Also they love doing the wii fit plus and in nice weather they are always outside; jumping on the trampoline, rollerskating, biking, we all walk the dog.. Also I to feed them high quality whole foods. But hey they are still kids and they also are allowed candy, chips and capri suns in moderation, I'm not going to sit on here and pretend I'm perfect.

I'm not worried about strong or being physically able to do sports better or as well as other children his age. I am more interested in the active and well being side. My hope is to raise a child who loves being outside, loves nature, loves having energy, and feels good about himself and has confidence. So at three he rides his bicycle (with training wheels), goes on walking trails with us, "hikes" in a local public garden/forest, and we get plenty of park time. It is also about role modeling so my husband is training for a triathlon and makes sure he is also running outside and playing right next to my child. I am signing him up for the YMCA soccer for three year olds because he asked to. I think it is too early but he asked so we will give it a try. I do no television. And I truly mean none.

We also go to the library, have play dates, and read a lot. It is a mind, body, spirit goal - not just to be stronger or better than other children. I don't dream about having scholarships for him one day. I just want him to enjoy life and have a healthy mind set about how he sees himself and his world. I also have thought about how I clean and use organic products. Organic foods as much as possible as well. The total package.
