Motherhood: It Keeps You Moving

Being a mom is a very physical job. It's not for the faint of heart. In one day I could be climbing monkey bars, chasing a crawling baby under the coffee table on my hands and knees, splashing in the kiddie pool, or more.

But it's this activity that keeps me healthy and happy. There's nothing more special than being able to get on your child's level and play. It's something that they will remember forever, and you will too. Motherhood definitely keeps me moving.

The other day, I sent my son out into the backyard to play. He asked for my help in flipping over a few rocks, so that he could see what sort of creepy crawly bugs were underneath. Since my younger son was napping, I was happy to get down on all fours and check out the earth warms and pill bugs right along with him. What a day!

Moms, what kind of daily activities keep you the busiest during the day?

Oh gosh....my kids are grown and gone now but I remember that just keeping up with the laundry and meals were a huge part of my day  :)

Thankfully, I only have a few loads a week. I do it every Monday.

Mine are grown also but I remember the toys! We use to clean them up before every meal and bedtime.

Seems like twice a week I am doing that.

 Just chasing after the kids haha!!  Mine are 3 and 19 months, plus I am 32 weeks pregnant.  We don't have a fenced in yard so I'm constantly chasing them when we play outside.

 Yes!  Laundry is another huge one.  It takes me like 1-2 hours just to fold because I hate doing it so much haha.

Chasing my two keeps me busy, and cleaning up after them is a full time job

Now that my youngest is in middle school, I spend a majority of my time shuttling teenagers to and from ... everywhere!
