There are a few factors involved in making this work. The first is the girls’ ability to adapt. It always seems daunting to start something new, but the more encounters they have with new things, the easier it becomes. Second, Sabrina and the other moms make me feel OK if my kids being loud and crazy for a minute, and I don’t feel like leaving with my tail between my legs for having disrupted the session. Third, I’m learning what works and leaving what doesn’t. Letting go of the ‘all or nothing’ approach to working out (and pretty much everything else) allowed me to stick with boot camp for the few sessions it took to get Claire and Olivia on track. I highly recommend it.
Now that all three of us are looking forward to boot camp mornings, we have a week off! We’ll have to find a new adventure for next week, and look forward to seeing everyone when we resume.
