hiding lingering pumpkin toddler lunch daddy style winter yard new kitchen trains no-cook snack finding a home for lots of toys
I am sitting here by the light of the Christmas tree and I am so ready for it to be gone. We are waiting until the week-end and I'm trying to enjoy its beauty, but it's dry as a bone and I'm all set to bid the holidays goodbye. I never feel like cleaning in the spring, but I always get the itch this time of year to organize and reshuffle. We need to find some new storage solutions for toys and I'm also obsessing over a mini bathroom make-over... but first things first this tree has to be un-decorated and lugged out of here!
I have been adjusting to the new very wintry weather. It's cold and snowy and much more challenging than last year, when Little Smith happily complied as I shoved him into his snowsuit. Now there's a lot of 'no outside mama' at the mere suggestion of boots. Once I force him out there, he does enjoy himself... but it's not a battle I'm willing to wage multiple times a day. We're keeping busy with craft projects and books and games, but this really is a long season here in New England.
This week-end there will be more fun in the snow for sure (I already have a massive backlog of snow pictures accumulating), and hopefully some organizing inside as well. Happy Friday!
