You see, I love the Summer Olympics. Mostly because it means my daughter can wear her 4th of July outfit more than once. But I am a rabid fan of the Parent Olympics, and this one doesn't wait every four years to come around. It's a daily event.
The Parent Olympics is open to moms and dads of any nationality, any marital status, with children of any age. There are a variety of categories but my favorites include:
- Speed Cleaning For Unexpected Company
- Diaper Change Races
- Hurdling Over Toys To Reach Your Child Before They Swallow Something Questionable They Found Under The Couch
- The Hallway Dash To Find Your Child When You Realize They Are No Longer In The Living Room
- And the most competitive event of the games: Who Can Function Best On The Least Amount Of Sleep
You probably didn't even know you were training too. CeCe is a pretty tough trainer. She cuts me very little slack. Even during her nap time I have to practice Speed Cleaning. I know she's proud of me though. She expresses it through cuddles, which is definitely worth more than a gold medal.
Here is CeCe after a long day of intense physical training:
I'm thinking about incorporating the panda hat into our team uniform.
