Kids--telling it like it is

Yep, I was feeling pretty good about myself. Just this morning I saw the scale at the Y hit a new low. Then tonight Bryce, Owen, and Lisa were sitting/playing on some sort of elevated crash pad at the football field when I overheard their conversation.

Lisa: Could this thing fall down and break?

Bryce: Only if someone who's really, really, really, really heavy gets on it.

Lisa: You mean like Mama?

I have to confess, I felt much better after our all-you-can-eat supper at Paul Bunyan's!

Glad to see Lisa's feeling better enough to ask those far reaching questions and play on football equipment. (see my comment on your Jonah day entry)

I'm getting my bike down to ride with Claire and have committed to walking with Abby. You have motivated me. (graph #1) Keep up the good work.
