I saw all the posts on Facebook. Kids playing in the snow, making incredibly looking snowmen. They were huge! Decorated! This snow must be perfect! Just yesterday, the kids were asking me when they could go out to play in the snow.
Snow pants?? Why do I have to wear them? Can’t I just wear my Crocs? These are too tight! Waaaaaah!I can’t find my red scarf and cat hat! You left them at school. Noooo!!!!!!!!!! Take the dog! X4
Well, the snow was definitely perfect for building crappy snowmen. We went out at 1 when it was beginning to melt. We made small dirty snowmen. Our boots and paws and gloves and jackets were covered in muddy snow. We took that dirt into the mud room where the dog kindly escaped and tracked mud throughout the house and insisted that we play a cat and mouse game to get him back into the laundry room.
40 minutes later…. Everyone has a fresh pair of PJs on, carpets are scrubbed and spots removed, dogs paws are cleaned, and the washing machine is on.
