I have got to find a way to get Veronica to move a little more. I think she is Practically Perfect in Every Way, of course, but she has picked up a little weight and I'm afraid that she is going to have some trouble - well, I mean, I just want to nip this lazybones habit in the bud is all I'm saying. I have no desire to limit what she eats or even think or indicate that she ISN'T perfect but she has really changed here, lately, I feel like, and I want to do something about it.
We went to an open gym the other day and she was having a high old time. She was bouncing on trampolines and jumping off balance beams and just running every where but she was DYING, red faced, kept drinking water, etc. She wants to do a lot of stuff, I feel like she could benefit from some guidance so I'm trying to think of something. She rides a bike now without training wheels, so that's good, and yesterday we went creek stomping and spent three hours there, then today we walked to the library from Marta's house and back (probably about two miles) and she had had it by the end, ha! She and I were at the back of the pack, I was with Felicity who I can't even talk about how slow she went, and Veronica was saying "ever and ever and ever ...". I said what's that now?, and she said, mad, NOTHING! Then I heard it again and again and I said Veronica, who are you talking to? I keep feeling like you're putting a hex on me or something. She said, super overemphasizing it, "this is taking FOREVER and EVER and EVER". Ha! So she is reluctantly exercising, is what I'm saying. Here's a cute picture of her after the gymnastics open gym the other day.
