I don't usually IF two days in a row- not for any specific reason, I just don't. But this morning I just didn't feel the need to eat! I baked up bacon, scrambled up some eggs and washed up strawberries and blueberries for my munchkins and didn't want to eat. So I slipped a couple pieces of bacon in to the fridge for later and fasted until 10:30 or so- almost a 16 hr fast. No specific workout today, just basked in the long awaited sunshine with my girlies. We ran and chased and I taught them cartwheels, burpees and crow pose (yoga). I captured the princesses (they dressed me up as a bandit) and imprisoned them in the dungeon (the back yard). We put the littlest down for a nap and then the princess and I came back out where she promptly discovered a stubborn patch of unmelted snow. She went in, donned a hat and gloves and decided it was time to make a snowball. She then hid it from me behind a tree, insisted that I close my eyes, led me to the hiding place and shouted "Surprise!!" I did my best gasping and acted so very amazed. Then I built up the snowball even bigger, added some twigs, pebbles and a half walnut shell, and made it into a little creature. I guess that made me the most villainous mommy in the history of mommyhood, because that little girl was irate. I was trying so hard not to laugh at her anger, but it was so misplaced and so sincere as to be irresistibly adorable. She wanted the snowball to be an egg, so upon the removal of twigs and such, we patched up the holes ("it's like magic!") and promptly gathered enough twigs to make the egg a nest. At which point the little princess became the mama bird and petted, cooed and caressed her egg into hatching (of course it was my duty to sculpt it into a bird- leaf wings and all). She sobbed when she realized her baby bird would soon melt and she couldn't keep it forever. Gotta say- cutest and most entertaining outside time/workout ever. Completely worth the time.
