He Calls It "Dump Truck Yoga"

This morning I asked Ethan if he wanted to go outside and get some fresh air with me. He replied, "As soon as I'm done with my yoga, mom," and proceeded to do this:

He did this:

for about 15 minutes. Back and forth across the living room floor. He'd flop his head down into the dump truck, trudge it across the carpet, apparently through the meditative powers of his dump-trucked head, and then giggle. Like this:

Even the cat was mystified by this wacky behavior (and perhaps by how badly my child needs yet another haircut).

Clearly I could not stop myself from taking picture after picture of this hilarity. I kept asking him, "Are you almost done with your yoga?" and he assured me that no, he was still quite busy "doing the yoga." I was tempted at one point to attempt to stick my own head into the dump truck to see if I did indeed find some sort of energy vortex in there that might promote a sense of "om." But you know, my head is a lot bigger than his. So I decided against it.

I laughed so hard at the first picture! This is so funny. My kids try to do lunges like the 30 Day Shred with me.

haha! so cute.

My kids sometimes ask to do yoga, or to exercise, but that just means they want me to attempt to do those things while they watch or climb all over me. Om

Harry likes to "play yoga" with me, but he makes it so not relaxing. I love dump truck yoga-- you guys need to make a dvd and book STAT.
