Saturday the kids were out in bathing suits, playing in the pond that had formed in our back yard. Sunday, we were "snowed in" since we live in the south and have no clue how to handle a winter wonderland. I'm so not jealous of my friends and family who live north of Nashville. I don't know how "you guys" deal with this mess. One day was fun and all I could stand.
Thunder suffered slight hypothermia. He and Her Highness played outside for nearly three straight hours. When I finally forced them inside, he could barely walk. After soaking in a warm bath for 30 minutes, he finally regained feeling from his waist down.
Funny how things change with age... I enjoyed watching the children from my heated living room, instead of being out in it. I was on hot chocolate duty, happy to greet my little snowmen with warm blankets and dry clothes to change into. I had a flash back while drying the kids off for the fifth time... I remembered how my Mom always stayed in to get dry clothes ready and make hot chocolate. I always thought, "Poor Momma, she doesn't get to stay out and play. She has to be inside doing work for the whole family while we have all the fun..." Mom, I'm on to you.
