Ninja Warrior has had a positive effect on Little Man's desire to get physical. In particular, he's very enamored with his muscle definition and likes to look in the mirror and flex and admire his big muscles. And they are big - for an eight year-old. I mean, I'm impressed. Tonight, he had me follow him to his "work out area" - a grove of crepe myrtle trees down the street - and he showed me a few of his moves... like doing 10 chin-ups on a tree branch (see video clip below).
His stamina and energy level is pretty impressive, I must say. He wears me out. Sweet bug-a-boo.
