This morning as I was getting ready to go running dd (3 1/2) woke up. I peeked my head in and told her if she had to potty she could get up and then daddy was downstairs and I was going running. Much to my surprise I heard her get up and race to the bathroom and then she headed downstairs carrying shirt, shorts, undies and socks.
Getting her up and dressed in the morning is often a 40 minute process so this was very surprising.
As she pulled on her clothes she said "I have running shoes and a running medal just like mommy" (she has a little medal from a 50 yd. fun run we did last year). I was heading out the door and she looked at me and she said "But mommy I want to go running WITH you".
So we went running. She held my hand and we ran about 2 blocks and then turned around and ran home. And she went in and I started my run.
My little girl is copying what I do, and what she sees is healthy.....what an amazing thing!
