- Exercise can be fun.
- Meeting goals is rewarding.
- Sweat makes you stinky.
"Mommy," Zoodle said when I got home this morning, "Are you sweaty?"
I confirmed that I was indeed sweaty. From the other room, Chickie heard us, and came in, holding her nose.
"Chickie, that's rude," I said.
From 20 feet away, she said, "Mommy, you need to take a bath."
"Stop that, Chickie," I said. "You can't even smell me from over there."
"Yes I can!" she insisted, still holding her nose.
By then I was genuinely annoyed. "No," I insisted, "you can't. And it's really rude to do that."
Sure, Chickie should feel that our home is a safe place to be honest.
But I should also feel that our home is a safe place to stink...at least for a little while!
