After the enchanting snowfall of early February, last weekend brought a suffocating blizzard. The kind that makes going out nearly impossible and braving the roads inadvisable. And the mild winter that has spoiled me so came down heavy on my head as we were trapped inside.
There’s only so much one can do in a space like this. Housework, for sure. Keeping a small space tidy is crucial!
Reminder: looked like this outside for 30 hours. That great white space is where the mountains should be. And people are clearing the sidewalks with old brooms and, get this one, kettle of hot water. Not a joke.
Butcher paper and glue and markers and sequins and any other random thing that might occupy 30 seconds of time. A day stucin this box with a 3 year and a newborn is measured in 30 second increments, for your information.
Then what? More utcher paper. And fingerpaints. In the bathroom because honestly I checked my email for a few minutes. THERE! I SAID IT!
Finger painting usually requires a bath afterwards. And having a Popsicle in the bath is normal. And hygienic. Sidenote: notice the size of the Popsicle, that is the full size. Can we say portion control!?
After that it’s pajamas and Ponyo with chocolate of some kind of another. And yes we keep multiple kinds of chocolate spread in our house. It’s a survival technique.
Baby O mostly did this. Smart girl.
