Yesterday was glorious. One of those March days that reminds you you’re almost to spring. It reached 70 degress. Everybody was outside. We played with bubbles and ran around without coats on.
But then today was a slap back to reality that March is still winter. School is closed. There are several inches of snow on the ground. The overnight low is 5 degrees.
Having grown up in this region I’m all too familiar with the fact that March, especially early March, is just a teaser month when it comes to spring. Although it was still a shock to see this on my weather app yesterday (note the current temperature juxtaposed with the red warning band).
Have you guys been experiencing weather extremes? I think Clara loves it, but Burger is OVER this snow.
Mommy: This milk expires on my birthday.
Clara: You should have a party!
Mommy: What kind of party should I have?
Clara: (looks around and sees that I’m holding a mug of hot chai) A COFFEE PARTY!!
Clara: You know what, dad?
Clara: I think if you put earwax in your smoothie it would taste yucky.
Clara: Mommy, let’s play hide and seek! I can hide under my bed! You’ll never find me under my bed!
Daddy: You know what happens next month? Mommy’s birthday.
Clara: Yay! I can get her something special. Like Olaf! I think she would like an Olaf!
Daddy: And then in April your little brother comes.
Clara: Yay! I’m so happy! This day is so special!
Daddy: And the next month after that is Clara’s birthday!
Clara: Yay! And do you think I’ll get something special? But I already have so many special things. I have Melinda and Baby Barnacle and my legos. What am I going to do with so many special things?
- M&Ms = Em Em Ems
