the happs.

hello there. i remember when i started this blog i had a non-mobile baby who would sit on my lap as i typed. gone are those days and replaced with a nonstop, action packed day filled with me not being able to let finn out of my sight making blogging a little more difficult. but that isn't the point of this post.

we, like everyone else, are snowed in for the day.
snow days are a little different when you're a stay at home mom. during the winter especially we are allllll about the play dates. adult time for me - socialization time for finn; a win/win situation for us both. being snowed in takes away all of these options. sure, seth is here but he wants to be on the up and up and work! so i am faced with trying to pretend he isn't here and then convincing finn that his daddy isn't here. in all fairness seth has not tried to get anything done but shovel today. long gone are the days when i worked and would beg for snow days so i could sleep in, lay on the couch, do nothing... finn gets up at the same time whether there's 2 feet of snow on the ground or not.

we started our day by "cah-wering," which is finn's favorite activity these days. it actually proves to be quite frustrating to him too but he constantly requests it so we try and encourage him.
(seth is perplexed by finn's mad skills.)
finn has discovered my wool hat and loves wearing it around. even though we keep our house cooler than most, it really isn't that cold in here. after the coloring was a pause for some cartoons.
and then time for outside! he loved the snow. he stomped around, fell forward, sat down, followed seth while he shoveled. unfortunately we don't have a great glove situation for him so when i took him back inside to warm his hands he FREAKED out. crying, trying to hit me, the works. but - i'm very glad he got a kick out of all the white stuff since it won't be going anywhere for a while.

  1. I LOVE YOUR POST TODAY! :) Snow days are WAY different for stay at home mommies. I found myself just nodding my head and agreeing with you as I read your blog. I hope you are feeling great, even though you are cooped up. :)
