My pal bravely battled the cold temperatures and gave her own private basketball team a little extra playtime on a Friday afternoon. At some point, Danny approached and noticed poor Mrs. I-Have-No-Body-Fat-Because-I'm-a-Health-Coach was shivering in the wind. He gallantly offered up his coat.
Most moms would not be able to wear a 2nd grader's coat. Yet Dan is very big, and Mrs. Fitness is not. With the exception of the sleeves, it was a near perfect fit:

This story proves several points:
- My much-maligned approach to raising kind and generous boys is working. Sometimes that is. Joey is still refusing to share his Halloween candy with me.
- Mrs. I-Eat-Raw-Carrots could use a few extra Ding-Dongs for the long Chicago winter.
- It's a bad idea to agree to carpool on Fridays because you always get roped into extra parenting detail. Mondays are the best. Low expectations.
Have a great weekend! Don't forget about Holly Days tonight! Oh, and if you're interested in being all healthy and living a good long life, be sure to check out Mrs. Healthy Living's webpage. I prefer to die in a tub of Twinkies when I'm 60.
