We live in Wisconsin and for about a week now we have enjoyed (yeah right) bitter cold weather and snow. This morning we had a freash coat of snow on the ground and the temp is in the mid twenties. That means it’s warm enough to bundle up and head outside to play. Let me tell you, glasses and snow do not mix!!!
The falling snow flakes would land on Teagan’s glasses and melt, messing with her vision and frustrating her. I found that keeping a hand towel stuffed in my pocket helped for the frequent times she came to me requesting I “clean them, please”. Then there was the dredded phrase “Oops, I dropped them” followed by my “calmly” asking her not to move while I looked for a glasses shaped dent in the snow. Thank goodness, we found them. Then finally there is the fog that covers the lenses after coming inside due to the temp change. I really have to keep an eye on Teagan then because she has been known to toss them on the floor deciding they are useless anyway.
Oh and while I was searching for the glasses lost in the snow my one year old, Taylor, managed to pull her boots off and was sitting in the snow in her socks (yikes!). That was it. Snow time over!!! Time to watch a movie and for mom to have a cup of coffee!!!!!! Is it summer yet?
