Yoga With My Little Ladies and a Haiku

Anneliese and Savannah (6 and 4) joined me for my Wii Fit Plus yoga today.

Anneliese said “Bridge is my favorite since I can climb right under you, Mama!” haha

I wrote a haiku about it (per Daily Mile’s Daily Mission). What a fun start to the day!

Young girls breathe mama
Inhale exhale calm yoga
We are warriors

A Little Encouragement from Dr Seuss

“You’re off to Great Places!
Today is your day!
Your mountain is waiting,
So… get on your way!”
— Dr. Seuss (Oh, the Places You’ll Go!)

“If you never did you should. These things are fun and fun is good.”

— Dr. Seuss

“So be sure when you step, Step with care and great tact. And remember that life’s A Great Balancing Act. And will you succeed? Yes! You will, indeed! (98 and ¾ percent guaranteed) Kid, you’ll move mountains.”

— Dr. Seuss (Oh, the Places You’ll Go!)

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?”
— Dr. Seuss

Musings of a Wood Floor

Oh, wooden floor

So slippery and smooth

Plank pose in bare feet

I feel my grip lose

Slip, slide, hips coming to floor

Not very graceful.

It’s just like before.

While lying on yoga mat

Stretching my back

I count dust bunnies, of those I have no lack!

Barbie brushes, pony holders, Legos and dirt

Other women must have cleaner floors

I cringe at the work!

Five children are mine, so messy and sweet

I wouldn’t trade them for clean floors any day

Though to work out without all this mess would be a treat!

Wii Fit Plus – 30 min.  🙂
