Not challenging as in, "Wow, that was a great workout!" Challenging as in the kiddo is having some sleep issues and trying to run last night was a challenge.
I think we're getting a little taste of the "terrible twos", because for the past week or so the kiddo has been very defiant about going to bed. Just the mention of bedtime and we have Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. One minute she's a cute little girl coloring at her Dora the Explorer table, the next, she's a heap on the floor, crying, flailing legs and arms, and saying "I don't want-a to!". We’ve tried various methods to make this a little easier, but still have some issues. I won’t go into all the details, but last night was more of the same, “I don’t want-a to!” thing. Every time I thought she was finally asleep, I would hop on the treadmill. Only to hear crying and “Mommy, mommy!” on the monitor. But, I managed to get in 10-minutes here, 4-minutes there, etc. All-in-all, I managed to get in a total of 30 minutes.
I’m just happy to have made it this far into the twos with only a tiny bit of the infamous “terrible twos” behavior. Thank God it's nothing a glass of Pino Grigio can't make all better. :-) This morning, everything was fine. She woke up as I was getting out of the shower and asked me, “Why you have silly hair today mommy?” Awww, so sweet.
