So if you lived in my neighborhood,
you would be able to
laugh at me (I mean cheer me on!)
several days a week
as I attempt to run/jog/walk
my 3 mile hilly loop with
"C" in her stroller.
It is all an attempt
to get back in shape
and firm up a few jiggles
before my winter hibernating begins.
Hibernating = Read:
Watching movies, crafting, and reading while
eating lots of my dad's delicious baked goods
-- cookies, breads, green chili, more bread,
banana bread, zucchini bread, ciabatta, etc.
So "C" likes to listen to my music but
my head phones don't work on her
little ears and i don't want her
to blast out her ear drums
so we rigged this little get up
for her to use while "WE" are running.
I made her a little playlist of kid music
and try to sing along when I'm not
panting too heavily!
I cut an "X" shaped slit in a couple of
bathroom paper cups
and popped my earbuds through the hole.
I think I saw something like this
on the "Instructables" website once upon a time.
It serves as a mini- amplifier
and it can be held up to her ear
like an old-fashioned tin-can style "telephone"
A perfectly economical
and easy solution that
works for us.
Not too loud and still lets us
talk to each other and
observe the sights around
How do you fit in a work-out
for YOU during your parenting routine?
