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!
