"You look like a superhero!"

Take a sledgehammer and wrap an old sweater around it. This is your "shovelglove." Every week day morning, set a timer for 14 minutes. Use the shovelglove to perform shoveling, butter churning, and wood chopping motions until the timer goes off. Stop. Rest on weekends and holidays. Baffled? Intrigued? Charmed? Discuss here.

"You look like a superhero!"

My 9 year old daughter and 4 year old son walked in on me doing shovelglove this morning. "You look like a superhero! You've got muscles!" my daughter exclaimed, a bit shocked. "I've seen him doing that before, " my son added nonchalantly.

Nothing like praise from the mouths of babes and sucklings -- Lord knows they have no inhibitions about delivering the opposite!

That's the sweetest compliment because kids are sincere and because they're your kids!!

So wonderful. I hope my 1-year old says that to me when he grows up hahahah

I think it's cute that your daughter had no idea you had muscles. I guess you don't invite her to punch you in the stomach often or to arm wrestle. Not that you need any more abuse, I'm sure.
