My husbands special running assignment with my son
My husband has come up with some plans in his time, some of which just didn’t work even though he was so determined to prove me wrong. When he mentioned to me about an idea for my sons birthday I didn’t think he would go through with it.
The idea was to take our son down the park on his scooter because he is so active he loves a lot of exercise but like everyone you don’t always feel like exercise yourself at the same time or you are feeling abit under the weather, my husband wanted to time our son around the park on his scooter.
I looked at him in amazement and didn’t know whether to slap him or kiss him.LOL. This idea as he calls it would be perfect for Kyle to get decent exercise and when we were done as he has more energy than us it is the perfect way for him to carry on.
Well I was very sceptical I just couldn’t see the idea working so I told my husband to take him down the park and prove me wrong so he did. When he came back he had the biggest grin on his face so I know he was about to start gloating. When they both got in and had got a drink and showered I was dying to know how it went.
So my husband started by saying when they got down to the park he let my son play on a few rides and things while he had a brisk walk around the park bearing in mind the park walk way must be about half mile round so its quite a good bit of exercise for anyone.
When my husband had, had enough he sat on a bench with his English newspaper and timed my son going up and down and around the park on his scooter not only did he do it with great enthusiasm but he couldn’t get enough he kept saying how fast was that daddy do you think I can beat that time.
Of course I think my husband had just abit too much fun with my son and the amount of times he sent him off on his scooter but he assures me my son wanted to. For the rest of the day we just chilled out and watched DVD’s another favourite past time of ours.
And I don’t think my son has had a better nights sleep for along time and best thing he just sees it as a fun thing to do so this is a must try activity for anyone who has over active kids and sometimes you don’t want to join in give this a try remember you heard it here first.
