My son now refers to the sun as, Mister Sunshine. Cute, right? I think so. That ought to tell you all how ready we are for the sunshine in my home. A few weekends ago - we had a real teaser of a day. The sun was shining, the air felt warm and I was in heaven. We pulled out some lawn chairs, got a few toys out, and sat in the backyard all day until the sun disappeared over the horizon. It was a wonderful day!
Today we woke up to yet another snow storm. YUCK! I have definitely come to a point in my life where snow is my enemy. I don't want to play in it, I don't want to drive in it, I don't want to shovel it... I don't even want to look at it. Please... Mother Nature, make it spring already! I am begging you! There is only so much that you can do inside before you're busting at the seams to get outside. Or more truthfully, I can only watch Lightening McQueen, Tow Mater, and Finn McMissle go around a racetrack so many times before I'm tempted to hide them. Haha, alright I would never hide them, but it doesn't mean I haven't thought about it. :)
Next year I am going to be more prepared. I am going to get a list of activities around that are meant for indoors. I would like to plan a few trips to some cool places like COSI. Next winter I am going to be the coolest Mom on this side of the Mississippi. But as for now - I am going to sulk about this stupid snow storm in March. I am going to play a few more games with the monster trucks, indulge my son in a few more games with his race cars, watch Holly Shiftwell and Nigel Gearsly take a few more laps, and smile in spite of myself. Well, because that is just the kind of mom I am. I will complain to you all and my husband, but my little man will be none the wiser... that is unless we get ANOTHER snow storm -- then he is going to know! Heck, maybe we will even get the Play-Doh out today...
Bundle up & stay warm!
