Running from the Law: Sunny Sunday

Sunny Sunday

Not sure if it's been like this where you live, but the weather here in St. Louis has been absolutely insane this month! Clinically manic, mixed with some bipolar schizophrenia. We spent the first weekend in February outside enjoying the sunshine. By Sunday afternoon (when these photos were taken), the kids had shed their coats and were loving the warm weather. The next weekend (Valentine's Day weekend), it snowed 8 inches. The following weekend it was in the high 70s (4 days ago) and today it snowed again! WHAT IS GOING ON?!! 

Anyway, I can't think of too many topics that are any more boring than the weather (even crazy weather), so let's just move on to crazy kids. We seem to be going through a rough patch with our tiny terrible threenager who thinks he's the boss of everyone. This kid is having serious problems listening, not back-talking, being nice, sharing, using manners and not talking about poop. I think a lot of this behaviour is a combination of cabin fever, boredom and frustration with my husband's travel schedule, but it's been really hard on all of us. So many time-outs, so many lectures, so many threats and punishments and battles. Three is going to be the death of me. Luckily, the other tiny human in our lives is a total delight and the sweetest, happiest, funniest, most polite little nugget there ever was. She's totally my favorite child this week. 

We did manage to get out of the house a few weekends ago and enjoy some really nice weather with the neighborhood kids. I brought my camera along and annoyed both children with my incessant picture snapping and attempts to get them to interact with each other. I feel like it's been ages since I had a chance to take photos of them outside, so I probably overdid it a bit (1,200 photos in 2 hours is totally normal right?), thus resulting in the photo dump below. These warm and pretty days make me so excited for spring/summer. I also just booked our beach house for our annual Florida vacation this morning, so I'm totally high on sunshine and giddy with excitement. Is it May yet? 
If you happen to see some sunshine today, please send it our way!

    We're having the same weather in Pittsburgh. It was 70 degrees on Saturday and Sunday, sixty degrees today, and it's supposed to snow on Friday. It has been like this all winter!

  6. That sandbox is the coolest! We're loving our spring-like weather here in the south. We even dug out the shorts this week!

  7. Aria is over the grey skies we've had this week. While we can still run around in sun dresses it isn't warm enough for playing in the hose. She asks over and over again if the sun came out so she can play with the hose again. And, three year olds are really just a delight. Mine bites.

  12. The weather here is so silently nuts as well. So much back and forth! But at least it gives me to knowing that spring is around the corner. And hurray for a booked trip to Florida!

  13. We were supposed to have El Niño here but all we've had is 80+ weather in February. I mean I'm not sad it warm and sunny but really? I wanted to wear scarves a little bit longer! Oh well. Maybe in September? YAY for vacation being planned though! May will be here before you know it!

  14. I seriously just wrote about dealing with a three year old today too! The rough patches are tough. And the back talk!!! Liam leaves me stuttering or speechless at times. I hope he is a little sweeter to his mama in the coming weeks.

  18. Dealing with a threenager calls for lots of liquor. That's all I have to say about that. And little mim is just gorgeous!!! Must take after her mama, right?! :)

  19. Hey, I have a 14 year old that is acting the same way! Last night, she would not listen & was just pushing buttons like you wouldn't believe. I had to banish myself to the basement before I let loose on her. Kids - ugh! Ha!

  20. I would love to ship you our summer-like weather. Beyond over it.
    The photos - per the norm - are amazing. But, the pic with Mim's hat over her eyes, I busted out laughing.
