One of the few things Husband nitpicks me about is how I love to schedule weekend activities. It seems that there is always something going on. It could be a birthday party, or a playdate, or some type of fundraiser event – we are there.
So, when this past weekend turned up with nothing to do I bet Husband was elated. Two glorious days ahead – with no pressing events, no parties. We even had a “Parent’s Night Out” planned on Friday to start out. But then we got a little storm which caused early dismissal, and in turn, canceled our Parent’s Night Out events.
Anyway, the storm skittered away, barely giving us snow. No matter, by midmorning Saturday we were already needing some fresh air so we bundled up the kids. Mayita really impressed us – B at her age loathed the snow. Between the sensory issues (wearing heavy clothes, gloves and boots) and the cold – we were never out for more than a few minutes.
Mayita on the other hand, was more than happy to be outside as long as possible. And thankfully B has gotten used to being outside and even embracing snow.
Unfortunately, the little snow melted and became a soggy, muddy and cold mess the rest of the weekend. We spent the rest of the time separating the kids and trying to make sure the fisticuffs were kept to a minimum. It was tough especially with a little sister who can cause as much mayhem as her little brother.
Lesson learned: try to schedule at least one thing to do, especially in the winter!
