Yep, thats what Im going to be this summer... A drill Sergent.  There will be a limit of 1 hour of TV OR 1 hour of computer OR 1/2 hour of each and thats it... I also think Im gunna make the kid do laps around the yard.  There is no reason on earth for my 6 (almost 7) year old to be so lazy/lethargic/unmotivated.  Yet, he is.  We walked to the park, DH pushing the 2 LOs in the stroller & me pushing Dominic's bike and Dominic walking.  He couldnt keep up with us.  DH had to keep yelling at him for walking too slow in front of the stroller.  We brought his bike so he could learn to ride w/o training wheels... that was only holding his interest for 15 minutes, though he ALMOST has it... a few more times & he'll be a pro!  Then the kids played on the playground for about 1/2 an hour & then we walked back so DH could start BBQing... Well, Dominic could NOT keep up... he was panting, sweating & turning bright red, wanting to stop every 2 minutes to "rest".  He's not fat or overweight... so I dont get it.  His father & I who are overweight (but not fat) and SMOKE *gasp* werent out of breath or complaining etc... So yeah... thats my new title over the summer.. not mom.. Drill Sergent :o)
