A Mother's Exercise Routine

Well, maybe I'm just fortunate, or maybe I'm just running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. For some time now people have been asking how I've been losing weight. Well, all I have to say is spend some time watching my kids and cleaning my house for 24 hours and you've got your answer.

My daily exercise routine includes the following:

2-3 loads of laundry (collecting, placing into washer then dryer, folding and hanging)
1-2 loads of dishes (collecting, placing into dish washer then put away)
6 x day on knees wiping up kitchen floor after meals and snacks
6 x day assisting of pick up couch pillows, Lego's, cars, trucks, books, etc.
10 x day taking Jr. to the bathroom for potty training
6-8 x day picking up (all 22 lbs of) Connor and changing his diaper
5 x day making meals and snacks and cleaning up after
2-4 x day rocking and nursing Connor
2-4 x day putting the dog out
1 x day vacuuming (ugh, the dog hair!)

and what ever else may happen - such as running to the bathroom because I hear two kids giggling and splashing only to discover Michael Jr. and Connor playing in the toilet with the scrubber and plunger!
