Monkey See, Monkey Do

Just when you think they're not watching...

They ride in your double jogging stroller, thinking that you are doing this for fun!

And they wind up deciding to push their older (and heavier) brother around the driveway over and over and over again!

It reminds me of the song "Oh, be careful little eyes."  Your children are always watching you and imitating you, even when you least expect it (like above).  If they see you running, they will run.  If they see you eating healthy foods, they will eat healthy foods.  If you see you pushing a double stroller, they, too, will want to push someone as they are running! 

That little four year old pushing more than her weight as she runs?  I love her. 

And, just for today, I feel like I am showing her the right example for her little feet to follow.
