During the summer, I have been trying to exercise during naptime. Parents of two-year-old's realize that is a relative term. I have been exercising in my bedroom across from Madeline's room.
Today, when I put Madeline in her crib for her "rest", she asked me, "can I watch you exercise mama?". I thought wow...I am making an impression on her! Yes, I did exercise and she does fall asleep watching me.
I have been doing a 10 minute cardio workout in the morning just to get the blood flowing and movement into my day. Madeline will dance around with me.
This is what being "fit" is all about. Making a part of all our lives.

This is Nason. Nason was the baby that "made us a family". He took eight years to arrive. Eight long years of waiting, praying, crying, begging and hoping. I would like to say that I never gave up hope, but that is not true. God is patient, but Christie, not so much.
If you do not have your own babies, that does not mean that you don't get to celebrate as well. This day used to be painful because people did not know how to treat me, when I was childless, on that day. However, all women serve in that "motherhood" role and we should all line up and rejoice and celebrate together.
Madeline Rose is my surprise baby. Madeline came after I had long given up an hope of having a baby. I was 43 and no one gets pregnant at that age. I had no idea that I was pregnant until the nurse gave me that smile and giggled.
God has been very good to me. I still can't believe that there are children sleeping in my bedrooms as I was convinced that they would stay vacant.
Happy Mother's Day to everyone...those with mothers, those who miss their mothers and those who act as mother's. Let's just rejoice and celebrate together.
