This is what Z says every morning as he runs to the window. As he looks outside his happy face falls into a frown and he says, "no snow today Mommy". With no snow in the extended forecast last week, the local meteorologists were actually apologizing. Today we have a wintry mix that will end in rain....no fun for the little guy at all. It is an interesting turn of events for a state that had snow on both Halloween and Thanksgiving.
So we wait...wait for the white stuff to fall from the sky and stick to the ground. I can't say I am too bummed out...I mean snow in these parts usually means no power! However the kids got snowshoes from Santa and when my mom asked me what I wanted for Christmas I said I wanted snowshoes for S so the whole family could go together (I got mine a few Christmas' ago). So now we are outfitted with snowshoes and new snowball makers and snow brick makers, and snow pants and boots......and there is no snow.
Z is even more impatient because I told him we would wait for a snow day to open up the big 5 foot cardboard rocket ship that Uncle B got them. He can't wait to open it, turn our playroom into a launch pad and color the entire ship ("Mommy, you will help right?"). So we wait, we wait for snow to come and stay for a bit.
Welcome to Raising Z and Lil' C, a little blog all about raising my 6 year old son and my three year old baby girl. I am a former teacher and now a SAHM. I love to write about our journey towards a more simple life, our daily struggles, share cute stories and love to share good ideas when I find them. I hope you will join me on the ups and downs of this journey called motherhood.
