Ah, holiday time. While the rest of the world is checking our guilt at the door and diving for the apple pie, eggnog, anything else that resembles a caloric meltdown, Victoria’s Secret Angel and mega-model Miranda Kerr  is busy keeping her enviable body in tip-top shape—with a little help from her adorable 1-year-old son, Flynn.

“Sometimes I will do squats while holding him as a weight. He likes that; he thinks it’s funny,” Kerr told the U.K.’s Evening Standard. Talk about being resourceful!

According the 29-year-old model mom, exercising with your baby in tow is also a great way to release much-needed endorphins (we’ll try anything to help endure the family-time overload). “Something that I think is good for everyone—but particularly young mothers—is to put the music on that your child enjoys and dance around the house. You can really have a great workout.”

Though most of us likely don’t have a 1-year-old at our disposal, we will look at our little nieces and nephews during our visit home in a whole new light. Bring on the eggnog!
