Thought for the day

There are few cardio-vascular workouts more effective than chasing down a wet, sudsy two year old who has done a Fosbury Flop out of the bathtub and is running for his life away from finishing his bath.  After that warm up exercise, you must return the toddler to the tub, rinse him off, remove him from the tub, dry him off, and put him into his pajamas.  After all of this you should be at your target heart rate, and can continue other activities to keep it up for the prescribed period of time.  These may include, but are not limited to, trying to read a story to an uncooperative toddler, picking up toys faster than the toddler can remove them from the toy box, and doing a dozen reps of the "put toddler to bed, catch toddler after he escapes, put toddler to bed" exercise.
