Hi, friends! Happy Monday to you!
It’s nap time over here, so I wanted to share our Quinn and Mumma day so far.
We were up and at ’em BRIGHT and EARLY this morning, and Quinn had A LOT of energy to burn (as seen on Instagram Stories), so we got our day started by going to the gym.
Quinn played while I took a Body Pump class. Remember how much I used to love Body Pump back in the day? Mal and I would take classes with Dave and Marie (remember them?) ALL the time – pretty much every weekend and then once or twice during the week. I even did Body Pump at home because I was so obsessed. Anyway… it felt really good to be back at it. I definitely challenged myself this morning and left a sweaty, exhausted – yet energized – mess! 🙂
After class, Quinn sent a letter to Santa. When I asked him what he wanted me to write, he said: “Happy Thanksgiving and merry Christmas. Love, Quinn.” The kid is too cute!
Once we were finished, Quinn mailed his letter via special North Pole mailbox – such a great idea, right? I love that the YMCA caters to kids so much!
Open swim was a lot of fun, and I was so impressed with Quinn – just like that, we have a swimmer! He got passed his fear of dunking his head, and now he swims under water! The progression from being afraid to SWIMMING was incredible. It happened so fast! It was so cool watching him enjoy himself so much and visually seeing how proud of himself he was!
Back at home, we were both more than ready for lunch. On the menu for me: A big salad topped with canned salmon mixed with Dijon mustard, chopped red bell pepper, and roasted onions (made in my air fryer) with a scoop of Smokey Red Mustard. Mmm!
While eating lunch, I asked Quinn some questions that Marie (hey, two mentions in one blog post!) shared on Facebook after asking her girls the same questions. I thought it would be fun to ask Quinn and see what he said. (I love doing stuff like this, so I can remember him at this age!)
