I only have a minute…but I have to share with you my new favorite thing.
The hula hoop.
My whole life I couldn’t hoop. I’d watch my girls do it…sometimes I’d try…always I’d fail. But no one ever tells me I can’t do anything. I am stubborn very determined. You say no…I will always find a way to say yes. That’s kinda who I am. Now you know.
Anyway, summer vacation and our icky rental home, meant almost every day I had my lovely children coming to the studio with me. Some would work. Some would create. Some would just whine. I don’t do well with unproductive, AND I love to exercise, AND I know well exercised children are like well exercised pets…much better to live with. Thus the hoop.
I wanted to try for a long time. So off to the sporting goods store. $19 later, two pretty weighted hula hoops. Let the fun begin.
Both the 11 year old and 13 year old picked them up and started hooping right away – and never stopping. How do young hips move like that? I mean seriously?????
I waited. I watched.
