Exercise? With 4 kids under 7?!

Image from: mobywrap.com
I'm contemplating how I can squeeze some exercise into my week. Aside from my baby-boobie-monster who I am using as my excuse to not go to a gym or pool, I also have a 2yo who is only in nursery between 9-12, and my two school age boys. I walk them too and from school but it's not that far and doesn't count as extra exercise because it's part of my normal routine.

I keep telling myself that once Freddie is not as dependant on me for feeding - which is likely to be when I go back to work in May - I will be able to go swimming or visit the gym for an hour after work some days. But that is still a long way off and very dependant on how well Hubby copes with having all four kids to himself for that extra amount of time...

I'm getting back on the Wii Fit, even if I'm only dong a bit of Step with baby in the sling, not unlike this lady: Sling Lady's Blog. And there's more inspiration from the Moby Wrap people here: Moby Exercise. My lovely new walking boots are still a good intensive to walk into town to do my local shopping - so long as its not pouring with rain.

So my current options aren't great, but at least I have Mon - Fri mornings with just Freddie so I can walk into town or use the Wii Fit with him in the sling on those days. It's not much, but it's better for my weight than sitting on my bum watching telly and eating cakes.

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
