I went for a bike ride with my neighbor today. I haven't been on my bike since last summer. Can I tell you that my legs are like jelly and my butt hurts? Well it does. Now my 3 y/o want me to go for a walk with her around the block. Ha! I can't even walk to the sofa.
Well that just goes to show you how out of shape I am. I guess this is a wake-up call to get moving. I've been doing well eating low carb and have lost about 10 lbs. I guess in order to lose more I need to get moving. Perhaps this is the motivation I need.
On another note, I have decided to send my 9 y/o to public school. I homeschool my 11 y/o and will continue. It just seemed the right choice for the younger one to be sent to school. The schools here are outstanding so I'm confident he will do well.
I should go vegetate on the sofa till the feeling returns to my legs!

What to do? How do I get my 3 y/o and my 9 y/o to stop fighting?? I try to keep them away from each other, but is that pratical? My 9 y/o is the middle child an struggles for attention. The 3 y/o is a girl and gets attention easily. I've asked them not to touch each other ever. That doesn't work. I ask them to get me if they have a disagreement. They don't. They can't even look at each other. I'm at a loss.
