Went in to Lululemon today. Rowan really wanted me to buy this headband for him. When we got home, Rowan of course did not want to go down for a nap. Something that is becoming more and more common. He already doesn't sleep well at night so afternoon naps are so important for him. I ended up closing the door to his room while he tantrumed for 15mins plus - when it got quiet, I decided to go and check on him - this is how I found him....nope, he wasn't tired at all :)
First run outside today. I had gone out with friends last night and left my car at the pub. Instead of paying for a cab today, decided that running to get my car would serve a dual purpose. Ran 4 miles - felt good to be outside with the sun shining. That being said, it is so freakin icy.... dangerous icy - made me realize how lucky we are to have a treadmill...
Since September, Ciaran and Shay have been taking HipHop class every Saturday at the Dance Elite studio in Milton. The class is for boys with special needs. To witness the progress in each and every one of the boys since starting in September is truly incredible.
Here is a recent blog post that Mallory wrote that really touched my heart. Click here for a good read :)
Our IRun4 buddies are just amazing!!! The relationships that the boys have created with Alison and Abby online has been so incredible. The girls are so caring, thoughtful and dedicated. The boys just feel so important everything they get a message or a pic from their running buddies.
Alison set a HUGE goal - to complete a virtual run from her hometown in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida to Burlington, Ontario. A mere 1,165 miles....she virtually stops at some cool tourist attractions along the way and shares facts/information/pictures. It's an amazing lesson in Geography - for those who know me, definitely not one of my strong suits so I am benefiting too :)
