Finally. A day with snow. I love living in the Midwest because we get such a wide variety of weather. This morning we woke up to a wintry wonderland, while yesterday–yes, literally yesterday–we were at the park with no coats.
So what to do on the first snowy day of 2012? My son TT decided it’s Christmas again and spent at least 15 minutes trying to convince me it really is. TT doesn’t have preschool on Thursdays, so we had planned to go to Bonkers (think McDonald’s playplace on steroids) but my friend who was supposed to go with us called to say her street wasn’t plowed yet. Bummer.
So I got them all bundled up to go outside, which took at least a half hour. Notice the socks on TT’s hands – I couldn’t find any mittens for him, so I had that ingenious solution. To my credit, his hands were still warm when he came back inside.
Anyway, I was really feeling like the mom on A Christmas Story. Never seen it? Check out this video.
Peach lasted about ten minutes, but TT lasted a good twenty out in the windy cold. Now everyone’s back inside, baby’s napping, big kids are
eating popcorn and watching Harry Potter wrestling like lions. (Have you seen the end of Lion King when Simba and Scar fight? That, only a two-year-old and a four-year-old. It’s super fun.)
So, no, it’s not Christmas, but it’s gearing up to be a fantastic snow day!
