Dumbbells and Diapers

Hello there! My name is Bethany. I am a mother. A certified personal trainer at Lifetime Fitness in Lenexa. I am a fitness fanatic. I had my daughter in September of 2011 and was back to working out a month after having her. I understand working, being a full time mother, exercising every day, and eating healthy for both myself and my family. Click on the About Me page to learn more!

I could stay in Child’s Pose all day.  (It was my Stretch/Off Day).

My daughter’s favorite shows are Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Barney (PBS weekday morning shows).  I usually have it playing in the background as we are doing our morning routine (breakfast, dishes, playing, etc).  Here’s how it goes:

9-10am: Sesame Street - L tends to ignore this one until Elmo comes on.

10-1030am: Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood - I love this one because it is about a little Tiger in a little world where everyone knows everyone.  A spinoff on Mr. Rodger’s Neighborhood.  Also - the hubby and I will sing along with the songs and the intro song.  Both when it is on and other times.)  We usually always watch at least this one.

10:30-11am: Sid The Science Kid - Super awesome colorful show about a kid that has lots of questions and spends his time at school ‘investigating’.  Grandma picks him up from school - I like this.  When L is a little older she may like it more.  Right now, she dances to the singing (especially the opening song).

11am-11:30am - Word World - L does not like this one much.  It’s clever, but it’s weird.  All the animals are made of letters and they ‘build a word’ to achieve goals.  (We sing this theme too).  I think the hubby likes this one more than L and I.

11:30-12pm: Barney - Oh Barney.  L knows the intro song and bobs her knees the whole time.  She likes the singing the most.  She tends to lose interest during the ‘talking’ between the kids and characters.

How awesome are her pants?  If I could pull those off, I’d wear them (in my size).

12:12:30pm: Caillou - weirdest show ever about a 4 year old boy (with no hair and a crazy name), his sister, and his mom and dad.  This show focuses on the platonic family and experiencing everything activities.  I like the mom.

12:30-1pm: Clifford the Big Red Dog - as much as I want her to like this one she tunes it out.  I liked Clifford!  I think she needs to be a little older to enjoy this one.  A little girl and her giant red dog - maybe it’s losing its cool.

Look who is helping me blog.

Who would have thought I would be spending time writing about PBS cartoons.  At least they’re educational.  I am excited for the day when she can work out with me (rather than hit me in the head with plastic drumsticks), go shopping with me, watch a full movie, and more humanly things.  Kidding!  She’s just a 14 month old.  Peas, suckers, PBS and toddling it is… for now.

I took the chocolate chip cookies to our neighbor today.  He was happy. :)

Anyone else watch PBS?
