I have a 16 month old (27 lb) toddler that wants to be a part of EVERYTHING I do! So.. While Holding her, I do squats! I do 2 sets of 10 to start off (you try it holding 27 lbs!)..

Instead of doing boring lunges and squats, I pick up one of my kids and do a weighted squat. They love it and fight to be the one who is my weights! I also do a lot more than I would have done with out the giggling smiling faces coxing me on.
