No, your honour, she wasn't in a fist fight


Just before I came out of the bathroom I heard a loud thump which had me thinking that The Little Madam had somehow managed to climb onto the couch and fallen off it.

But the boy was sitting on the couch, so that wasn't it. What it was, was that TLM had spontaneously decided to give yoga a try, and failed to keep the pose for the recommended two minutes.

That's right - our bum-shuffler, who is only ever gets on her hands and knees when she's moving from tummy-time position to sittin gup, was trying to crawl. Or maybe she really was attempting a downward-facing dog position.

Anyway, it ended with a nose-dive. Perhaps the trauma of having one's face unexpectedly, and harshly, meeting the kitchen floor is really tiring. But today, split lip and all, she actually went down for her morning nap (though the boy did have to resettle her).

Exercise hurts..

happyandblue2: Oh, I thought her lesson was that she shouldn't do yoga wearing socks...

This is why I rarely exercise.

Downwards Facing Dog is so overrated. Perhaps introduce her to Upwards Looking Chicken?

neil: ...because you tried it once as a baby and fell flat on your face?

nyx: ooh I don't know that one - does it result in scrawny legs?
