Swinging

swinging

If I had a different job, I might be able to wear heels to work every day.  I might be able to have conversations with adults throughout the day.  I might make more money.  I might have time to actually go away from my workplace during lunch.

But if I had a different job, I wouldn’t have spent 20 minutes swinging today!  🙂 

(Please, God, if I teach a different grade level next year, let me have recess duty!)

Let me tell you something you might not have known as a child.  Swinging is exercise.  Especially with the extra weight of a 4-year-old on your lap.  But we’d better not call it exercise, because I could easily swing for a straight hour!  Well, swing with the occasional interruptions of jumping off the moving swing.  Swinging is fun, but there is nothing like the feeling between the letting go and the landing!

Is it strange that I still jump off moving swings at the age of 27?  🙂
