Going Viral

It was a slow three day weekend. Frigid temperatures kept us mostly indoors, except for a few bundled up walks around the neighborhood. On Monday, all three girls had dentist appointments. I tagged my husband, Arnauld, in to help with that.

When we got home, everyone was already bundled up, so we took another stroll around the neighborhood. When we got home, I warmed up some lunch for the girls, then said to Arnauld, “I’m going to go downstairs and do a workout….Want to come?” I didn’t expect him to say, “Sure,” but was happy to have his company.

“Dad and I are heading downstairs,” I told the girls who were all busy in their own activities. They all looked up, a bit puzzled. We’ve done workouts together before, but not since we moved to our new house. “Don’t get into trouble,” I warned.

Three minutes into the workout, Adi appeared with her Kindle in hand. I could tell she was making a video. “What are you doing?” I asked.

“Oh, you know. Just taking a video of you and dad….so you can go viral,” a mischievous grin creeping across her face.

Arnauld and I looked at each other and laughed.

Imagine that. Us going viral!

Also, what does Adi, our seven year old, know about going viral?!?

  1. Hahaha! I would love to see that video. And where on earth do kids pick these things up? I know that my own two (slightly older) know a frightening amount. Glad you got out for a walk and in for a workout.


  2. I notice you didn’t drop it here. I guess we’ll have to wait. Sarah took some video of me a few days ago because I took out some paper while I was figuring out a Wordle. “I suppose you’re posting this?” “Nope,” smiling, “just keeping it for the future.” I’m glad you captured this moment of someone capturing a moment.
