Very good article. I had to smile. When my son is engrossed in either a book or project, I assumed that he was tuning me out. :o)

As I was reading this, I started watching my 4yo. He's having the time of his life... boxing a kangaroo.

Thanks for the wonderful article! Changing our attitudes to that of children, with their playfulness and energy may increase ours!! I am motivated!

I would add a 12th about babies' eating habits....they don't eat when they aren't hungry. When they get full, they push it out of their mouths when we put it in. We force feed them and teach them to overeat..... I have stopped urging people to "taste this" when they are full, and I don't give in when people do that to me.

What a great article -- gave me an instant "good mood" feeling. That liberating feeling when looking at the world through a eyes of a child that generates all kinds of carefree memories like swinging high, squealing and laughing on those (manual) merry-go-rounds that you have to hang on tight to when it goes too fast, Christmas eve ... Ahh nothing like nostalgia in an adult world :)

Such a great & very true article! Not everything about a healthy lifestyle has to be a chore!

This is so true. Last night, rather than get on my bike after dinner and do a focused ride to get in my time/miles...I asked the boys if they wanted to go.

And they did!

We biked, maybe not as far, nor as fast, but it was a lot more fun! We'll be doing that more often! :)

Great article it is so important to take the time to think through all of these - let's not let our "diets" and "weight loss goals" ruin our daily fun. Especially when we can do so much with our children!
