I want to be STRONG...not just physically but emotionally. I know
that working towards improving my body and mind will help me to create
happiness in my life and the life of my family. Don't they always
say....a happy mom makes a happy family!!
One of my favorite memories from my childhood is spending summer days at Nana's house. My mom would take us to Nana and Papa's house and we'd spend hours playing in the water. I remember being called "water rats." Funny thing is that my Nana had these old plastic measuring cups and spoons, and these were our favorite pool toys. Oh, we had all the tubes and such, but these measuring cups were great. Nana still has these same measuring utensils and my girls loved them. Another favorite thing was playing "washing machine" with my dad! We had this big yellow rubber boat. All three of us kids would climb in the boat and my dad would shake it and say such things as rub-a-dub, three kids in a tub. We would laugh so hard. Another thing I remember is having the radio on, playing in the backyard (when the flowers are in bloom--it is gorgeous), while we would swim. Sometimes, when I hear certain 70's songs on the radio, it is almost like I am a kid, swimming in Nana's pool, feeling very carefree. Those were wonderful days. I am very grateful that I can take my kids to Nana and Papa's house to enjoy that same carefree feeling.
