I feel terrible about it.
I have lots of reasons, and excuses. Weather, things to do, etc, etc. Only one is good (and cute):
See when Huffy asked me to participate I was genuinely excited about the prospect of a bike and riding. The thought that I would have a baby never crossed my mind. I used to work out and run when I had my other babies so fitting it in didn't seem like it would be a problem. My kids had just gotten bikes and I had visions of us all riding off together through the wooden trails near our home.
Yet there she sits
PBbaby won't take a bottle. After school/work is a fussy time for her and if she is not with me she is crying and fussing. So I can't leave her with my husband (or a sitter) and go ride because she just cries (or screams) and diner doesn't get made. I looked into getting a trailer but Georgia is a single speed. According to my husband (who does understand Physics, unlike me who faked it) and the guy at the store I probably wouldn't be able to go anywhere with the trailer attached because it would be to heavy/too hard to pull.
It's been so beautiful here too with gorgeous perfect sunny 70 degree afternoons. I want to ride. Not just because Huffy expects me to but because it was fun. Huffy didn't send me the bike so I would blog about it, they want moms to get out on the bikes and ride. Take time for themselves or take time for family and get out from behind the screens and ride. I am determined to not let another beautiful weekend pass without a ride. This weekend I am am going to ride it to my local bike shop (while PBbaby is napping) and see about getting a seat for her. Since she is sitting up on her own now I think that might be the best way for me to get out there and actually ride.
Because Georgia, she wants to ride!
If you have three (or more) how do you fit in/find time for fitness and taking care of you?
