This morning my sweet little 3 year old came into the bathroom while I was putting on my running shorts crying. She was so tired still and really didn't want me to go running. She told me to put my pj's back on instead and go back to bed. SO TEMPTING! But instead I took her back to bed and told her I would be back soon. She made me promise to be back in 3 minutes (everything is 3 to her) and she was fast asleep before I left the house. When I got home from the gym around 7:00 all 4 munchkins were still sound asleep. I don't love getting up so early (although doing it for over 9 years has made it much easier) but I do it so I can workout without taking any time away from my kiddos. Working out makes me a better mom. I am glad that I have the awesome workout buddies I do who have kids too and have to workout way too early with me!
