First snow

November 10, 2017

Dear Babies,

Omg TGIF. This has been one big long week from hell and I am thrilled to be saying a hearty goodbye to it. Fuck you, week. We’re over you.

Now that everyone is on the mend (poo poo poo), it’s time to get back to our regularly scheduled schedule of doing shit. But, oh wait – it snowed!

When I opened my eyes this morning and saw the snow on the ground my initial thought was “fuck” and that it would be a long time before I ventured out to the great outside again. I hate being cold, I hate snow and I hate winter in general. But then I had this flash of being a kid and seeing that first amazing snowfall and I remembered how exciting it was.

There was the thrill of new outdoor activities, of new coats and the possibilities that lay in the freezing beyond.

It made me think how much I love being able to re-see the world in your eyes. Eyes that look at this snowy day not with contempt but with wonder. It made me want to haul out my parka (ug) and take you on a snow-venture.

And this is just another time it’s good to remember that the world isn’t as grey as it seems sometimes – if you can see it through the eyes of a child. Play more and pout less and let’s get on with this wonderful winter because I know when I was a kid, that’s exactly what it always was.



P.S. By the time we got winter ready, the snow had melted. Of course.
