Unlike me at their age, my kids are extremely active! When I was a kid I was quite sedentary. I would sit and read or draw for hours on end if my parents would let me, and I was always very reluctant to do exercise of any kind. My kids aren’t even involved in any organized sports or anything, they are just naturally on the go all the time. I guess it’s because they take after my husband, a devoted “fidgeter” who never sits down. If anything, I have to encourage them to take a break from their active play every now and again so they can eat or sleep! I’m actually very grateful to have such active, healthy kids-it gives me a lot of hope for their future health.
They get it from their father!
