You tired of me talking about snow? You are?
Well I’m tired of looking out the window and seeing it.
Don’t get me wrong. I like snow. I like seeing the kids have fun in the snow. But there comes a time when fun snow activities come to an end. There’s only so much hot chocolate, and fort building, and fun pinterest experiments one can handle. Or me, just me, I guess.
Because on top of everything else, it’s just so cold. I mean, wind chill temps in the -teens? No, thank you. So did we go out in it?
You bet we did. Because we’re crazy like that. They look thrilled, but don’t let their lack of enthusiasm for the photo fool you. Also, I thought they looked pretty funny in their get-ups but the joke is on me…they were out there for longer than I could last and it took some convincing to get them in. “Sprinkles” (Finn-speak for marshmallows) may or may not have been involved in that negotiation.
Mia cleaned Dad’s car off.
Finn helped shovel the sidewalk.
And then he did this forever.
TODAY WE GOT OUT! Ahhh, yes…
But it couldn’t just be an easy outing.
First there was this to conquer:
+ this to get through:
But all that = to me enjoying this:
The kids actually did better at the dentist this time. Mia prayed last night that she would be brave at the dentist. She was very excited and couldn’t wait, but was scared she would not do great like one time before (a year ago). She was a trooper. Even though that picture is bad and looks like she’s hating it. I just didn’t have lots of picture taking opportunities. What it does show is how long she is. Sheesh…she’s growing like a weed.
Finn did better. Not awesome. But better. We at least got his teeth cleaned this time which is an improvement over last time. He did love watching Toy Story on the ceiling, though.
As did Woody. How come he gets the chair?
And I just love this:
His control wasn’t doing anything. The kid to his right was actually playing, but does Finn care? Nope. Ha.
We learned lots at the dentist today: Mia has another loose tooth, some of her 6 year molars are in, and she gets to see the orthodontist in 6 months. Here we go…we knew it was coming, but it just seems so crazy that it’s already here. Hopefully getting her in early will mean easier process….she’s going to need quite a lot done to correct her bite. She came home one day asking for braces. She’ll get her wish but probably won’t want them as much by then. Let’s just hope we don’t literally have a million dollar smile coming from that girl. Guess I better get all the fancy coffee I can get now before those bills start coming in.
