Ode to Mom


I was just reading my friend Jaidi's blog about dandelion's and her mom and this week I totally had a moment where all I could think about was my Mom. The reason you ask? Water aerobics. My Mom has gone to and taught water aerobics longer than I probably have been alive. It still makes me sad knowing I only went to a handful of her classes (they were REALLY early) and everytime, she totally kicked my butt! So, since I'm pregnant, I've been told water aerobics is the best workout. That is why Monday night I went to Aqua Attack. Now I'm a vain person who considers myself still in excellent shape thanks to my x-biking class that I'm still teaching. My vanity has been stripped away now. That class kicked my butt! I even took it fairly easy because, hello, way pregnant here. After I left, all I could think about was my Mom who will always be able to kick our butts in anything water related and still has the best legs of the family! So for you Mom . . . you rock! Maybe one day I can go to a water aerobics class and not want to pass out halfway through! Love ya!

That's sweet. You're probably more like your mom than you think. I always thought it was interesting how much you could sweat doing water aerobics. I didn't know it was possible to sweat in the water! Good for you for staying so active while you're pregnant. You have every right to be vain--you look great!

I think that you should explain how early her classes were. I am a morning person and would not have attended them. But you are right your mom is amazing. Kat, don't put yourself down, so what if a water aerobics class kicked your but, you did it, and that is what counts. I wish I could have gone to one while pregnant. Maybee next time around.

your mom is amazing!! i remember we talked about going to some of her classes, but they started at 5 am. in Rexburg that means even when the class finishes the sun won't be up.

Kat...you're amazing! That really must have been tough. You look so great in the picture of you with your mom. I miss you tons!

Kat, I can't believe you have the energy to work out. Everyday after teaching school it is all I can do to make dinner and stay awake until 9p. You look great!
