I promised Maria the next time it snows we will go out and play in it.
Well, the next time came. And I (reluctantly) kept my promise!
I'm not a big fan of playing in the snow. I bought Maria a snowsuit (the overall/pants portion of a snowsuit)on sale last year in hopes that she would be able to use it. I never got around to getting her a coat or boots.
And Naomi didn't have any snow gear so I was dreading the whole process.
But...I did it. I layered the kids up (which took 45 minutes) and I was "that mom" who put bags on her kid's feet to keep them dry. But for 25 minutes of fun, who cares what they look like, right? This was a lot of work to do by myself.
I am embarrassed to say that this was Maria's first time EVER playing in the snow. (She will be 4 in July)
Maria loved it until her hands got wet. Naomi fell on her face a few times and mostly just stood there looking around. But overall it was fun. I got a few good laughs and some cute pictures and they both enjoyed hot chocolate afterwards!
