|R poised to take a leap|
Nothing's really changed in adulthood. I go to the gym (with reluctance), because it's good for me, but I hate running, sweating, sports, lifting anything heavy and physical tasks in general. I have fantasized about buying a mobility scooter for sightseeing, so that I could cover more ground with less work (museum visiting tends to be tiring!).
With that said, I am not sure how I ended up with a child like R. She loves all physical activity--climbing, dancing, running, jumping, kicking balls, swimming--and goes out of her way to engage in it whenever possible. She never walks if she can run, and if she can climb something, she will. Typically, R bustles about the house, immensely busy with her various projects (like moving stools to reach things on the counter, rearranging the couch, or packing bags full of toys and other objects until they are so heavy she can barely lift them).

|She loves doing this, just for kicks|
|And this: climbing a high railing at the zoo, rather to the horror of the surrounding Singaporeans|
|A lot of kids have a similar reaction to R, like this little girl. Who is that crazy redhead?|
