I love getting up early in the morning before the kids. It is quiet and peaceful! If I have time after prep and before the kids I like to sit with a cup of tea and catch up with hubby before he leaves for work @ 6am.
I have found that if we are to get out of the door @ 8am (on my work days) then breakfast must be over by 7:30am. I have also found that if we are done by 7:30am I can get them outside to play quickly and with the warmer weather coming this will be a blessing for getting things done!
I used to try and get up at 5am and go for a walk but for several reasons this wasn't happening. One day I sat down and had a good heart-to-heart with myself. I DO want to exersise but just find it so difficult to find the time with 3-under-3. I realised I had to find something that would provide exersise for me and include the children.
I thought of walking but obstacles such as, not being able to go far enough because of Chook's little legs, Strawberry and Ooffa sitting in their pram for half-an-hour and not letting off energy keep popping up. It had to be something I would stick at.
Then it hit me! Bike riding. I love riding my bike and with the trailer attached for Strawberry and Ooffa we could really go places. I could even take them to Daycare by bike (on a non-working day) and get exersise doing something I'd ordinarily use the car for. Take them to the park even!
I got very excited about the possibilities bike riding could offer and then I realised my old bike just wasn't going to cut it. After discussing it with my wonderful hubby, we went to the bike shop and picked out a bike. I went with a small mens bike due to the angle that the WeeRide would have been on a ladies bike. When we got it home Triple T Dad put the WeeRide on (Chook's seat) and attached the trailer.
I've had it for over a week now and have taken the kids out 4 times! Twice I have had to contend with the wind but the bike has been a dream to ride and pulls all that weight beautifully!
