Every school day my son requests his doodle...the one I draw on his snack bag. At times elaborate, whimsical, topical, but mostly just whatever he is into at the moment. I am NOT an artist, but indulge this request each day for fun. This is a daily musing about his requests.

Run Lola Run
Oscar has been running with me a couple days a week - so far so good. The highlights - lots of chat time & energy expended. It's also super cool to answer questions about stuff you totally take for granted as a grown up. "Why do we swing our arms when we run?" & "Is sweating good for you?" are nightly conversation starters while we are hitting the pavement. Of course, there are some questions that pop up based on what's going on all around us that are a bit trickier to explain to a 6 year old. For example: "What are those people doing in the grass? They're not exercising are they?" Um, yeah...avoid the area around the basketball court in the park - noted. Happy Tuesday! xoxo
