Being a SAHM doesn’t leave me with much time to accomplish things for myself. Some mornings the kids will play upstairs and I’ll work on some blog posts or attempt to get some laundry done, but more often than not until daddy gets home around 6pm, my day revolves around the kids.

Not that I mind (I know I only get times like these in their first years) and now that both kids are a little older, I’ve started to let them do certain things with me. When both kids were babies, I would occasionally do baby yoga with them, but I like to promote a healthy lifestyle. Now that they’re older, they’re understanding things more and asking questions so when my daughter wanted to do yoga with me, I happily obliged!

My workout may not have been as productive as it normally is as far as the actual workout goes, but it was more productive for me when it came to laughter and time with my girl! The look on her face as she watched me and tried to mimic my moves melted my heart. She pulled out her picnic blanket that goes with one of toys (even though I have a second yoga mat I offers her) and she practiced her moves right beside me. It was one of my favorite workouts to date!

If you want to spend time with your kids, but want to get that workout in too – have them join you! We had a blast!

Watch for an upcoming post on Lavery demonstrating some fun “toddler” yoga moves for you, too!

    That is too cute! I keep contemplating letting my daughter join in on some Tae-Bo with me. Honestly, I think it would be good for the both of us. And let’s face it…she’ll probably be tired afterward and take a nap so I can get some other stuff done! 😉

      I really love what a healthy image it promotes! It’s definitely not as productive, but we have so much fun with it!!

    Both of my kids used to try to do yoga with me. It was always adorably cute, even if they were in the way a little. I love that they wanted to do what mommy was doing. 🙂

      It’s too cute! I lose out on some of the workout, because I’m loving watching her – but it’s just as healthy to have this time with them as it is to get in the workout itself! 🙂
