    It snowed here last night. It’s supposed to snow again tomorrow night. Spring is never going to come to Iowa. Never. My children no longer remember that it is possible to go outside without snowpants, boots, hats, scarves, mittens, and heavy coats.

    i feel the same as meg about philly. more snow supposed to come tomorrow and wednesday…sigh… so ready for sydney to be wearing cute little onsies and sundresses again, to frolic in the grass, and get dirt under her little itty bitty fingernails. she’ll be able to wear dresses again for the first time in six months now that she’s walking (kind of walking)! (no dresses during the crawling phase, unless we want to torture the poor child with endless faceplants)

    I know, Carrie. We are on our 8th snow day today. I think you’re getting what we just had as far as snow is concerned. I can just barely remember the day, a long time ago, when my children ran around outside in sandals … and sometimes even barefoot. I think we hooked up the sprinkler and let them run through it before the ice age (this winter) began. 🙂

    oy, so jealous! i miss the seattle spring that starts in february. we are finally above freezing here for the first time in a while – i am ready to see some buds on trees and crocuses (croci?) peeking up through the dirt!
