Lots of Steps
October 1, 2008
I was given a pedometer for Mother’s Day this year (thanks, Mom!) and finally got around to figuring it out. I wore it all day yesterday, just out of curiosity. How many steps do I take in a day?
Well, apparently a lot. Roughly 13,500.
I had the children guess how many steps I’d taken at dinner last night. Lucy said 400, Phoebe said 100, Bridget said, “1-2-3-4-5-6-7.”
When I revealed the actual number, everyone gasped and Phoebe swung around in her chair, head cocked to the side and finger pointing at me, and without missing a beat, exclaimed, “I’m wearin’ that thing tomorrow.”
We all got a good chuckle out of it.
