She braved the snow - this little pixie.
Whenever I have sent the big kids out, she graciously declined.
And since she naps well, and sleeps at night,
I didn't feel compelled to make her go out just to tire her.
Well today, I wanted to go out.
Imagine that. Me getting ready to go out in the snow....
Hm. Quite a picture, and one that no one took, thankfully!
Because I wanted to go out, and all the big kids were out,
no one was left to babysit Lina and Bryce.
We dug out a thrifted snow suite for Carolina and some red mittens that sister outgrew
and Bryce was packed into enough clothing to keep him warm while I toted him on my hip.
And we went out.
All of us.
Carolina discovered that being a "big kid"
and playing in the snow
aern't merely to be endured
rather... she really had a ball!
Once down the hill in a sled was enough though
(what a great big brother!)
and then some exploration with cousin Micah...
but after that she was a faithful snow-packer for her brothers
as they built their forts!
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
