Little E is learning small talk. It's amazing how quickly he has advanced from 1 word demands, to 3 word phrases to full out conversations! A couple weeks ago I found Sophie the Giraffe under his change table. This is a conversation he had with they toy when they re-united:"Oh, hi giraffe. Hi. Hello. Hello, boy. How a doin?".
Luckily, his back talk is still manageable with his, "no way, Mommy!"
I am starting to really see the sponge-like effect of a toddler. There is no talking over his head. He is ALWAYS listening. Like when I yell be quiet! or watch out! to the dog. Oops. Guess who needs to practice their manners?
Speaking of the devil, let's talk straight here. Lately, I have been all talk and no action.
100 push ups challenge? Failing. (I keep re-starting it because I don't want to do it half-ass).
Working out? Fail. (Other than my soccer and ball hockey games).
I could talk the hind legs off a donkey with excuses, but let's face it; talk is cheap. I need someone to talk me into some motivation! Won't you give me a pep talk? I need to start over.
I've had soccer the last two nights (we won the finals last night, woot woot!) so I think I'm going to roll with punches here and keep up with the exercise. Since I have been working from home, I haven't been able to use the gym in my office building. And I really want to get out and start running again. I'm not a cold weather runner, but now the sun is tempting me. Maybe I can start taking little E out in the BOB stroller for runs in the evenings again (yay for daylight saving!).
Here's to talking the talk and walking the walk!
