I was busy pointing out some fossils in the rocks to my kids when suddenly life got interesting. They both starting screaming and jumping around like we were being attacked by ravenous zombie hordes. It took me a minute to realize they were freaking out about the ants that were crawling on their feet and up their legs. Great.
It took me another minute to get all the ants brushed off, kids sort of calmed down and herded back towards the car away from the "killer attack ants". As I was rolling my eyes at my kids freaked outness I could sympathize by imagining those ants had been spiders. If there had been spiders crawling up my legs, or theirs for that matter I would have been right there with them freaking out. It would have been an every man for himself situation.
Gives me the chills to even think about.
I lost some Mom is super cool points when I wouldn't let the kids make magic potions with sand in the bathroom shortly after that. It's hard being a super cool Mom!
3. Went for a bike ride this morning after a ZWOW workout, my legs were pretty tired and I kept having to dodge road graders. They had the gravel road all worked up so it wasn't very easy to bike on. Made me work a lot harder! I tried to do a short run after wards but I didn't like how my quad felt so I called it a workout. I added in some yoga with 20 minutes of upper body and core work in the afternoon to round my day out nicely.
Check out my new flexibility! I can now touch my toes standing and sitting! Woot!
