Life With Wee People: The 7 Olives Rule
The kids have been fascinated with our popping in and out of the gym. Sometimes they'll try and get rid of us by telling us we need to go exercise then shove our butts towards the front door as if it's chubby people steering (silly grin).
I've been trying to explain why I sometimes go twice a day. I made the mistake of trying to do simple calorie math by whipping out a jar of olives as an example. Noah, the Net Geek thinks it is insane that 7 olives equals approximately 30 calories. If you do the math that means you have to stay on an Arc Trainer for 15 minutes to get rid of a pizza topping (LOL).
I've been paying the kids in M&Ms, cookies and milk for helping me make Ambassadors of Chaos blog post logos so now they're demanding to know how long they have to exercises to work the fat off... Have you seen my kids? They are mad skinny because they rarely stop moving (LOL).
I told them we should skip the gym math and play with the guitar instead. Stephen's response? "Here, have a cookie, Mommy..." (which will cost me 50 crunches later - LOL)
The shorties are down for a little beach-side music mischief. We're gonna Skype the girls, lay down tracks and make more music blog logos (silly grin).
After great debate we decided what "The 7 Olive Rule" should be: "Eat, enjoy your meal, be happy in foodie-moderation and don't sweat the small stuff or you wont enjoy your pizza..."
Out of the mouth of babes, eh? ;-)
