...because yesterday, my children played "Biggest Loser" for over an hour.
They had challenges: Carry 5 Barbies from the basement up 2 flights of stairs, one at a time--first team done gets immunity;
Temptations: something involving the oatmeal pies I had just purchased;
tearful weigh ins: the 7 year old has plateaued at 54 pounds, in spite of his intense effort; and
One mother of a last chance workout. As I was watching our 11 year old pretending to be Bob, yelling "Come ON!! Last CHANCE!! You can do this!!" to our 35 pound 5 year old daughter as she jumps on and off an overturned toy basket the only thing I could think was...
it could be worse. They could have chosen to play @#!*% 's Kitchen.
