Last night it started to snow. In April. Not even early April, but April 13th. I was not impressed. I’m quite done with winter and snow in particular.
Gordie on the other hand looked out the window and said “It’s snowing!” with the enthusiasm of a child who had been hoping all Winter for just one day of snow.
This morning when I looked outside there was over a foot of wet, heavy snow. Seriously? I am almost desperate for Spring. I need sunlight again. And grass. Remember grass? I don’t ever want to leave the house again.
But Gordie takes one look and demands to “Go play in the snow!” He couldn’t have been more excited.
So I grabbed some things for a snowman and spent 20 minutes getting us both into our snow gear. Gordie had the best time and honestly, it was the best part of my day too. Usually the snow in Calgary is too dry to stick together, so it’s nearly impossible to make snowmen and it’s usually unpleasantly cold at well. Today the snow was perfect and it was right around freezing.
It’s hard to stay in a bad mood when someone around you is having so much fun. That being said – snow in April still sucks.
I’m not sure my kids remember what grass is! I barely remember. You are a great mom for taking him out, and then actually building a snowman. I don’t think my kids have ever had the good fortune of building a snow man.
HAHA…my kids said the same thing. I on the other hand, was not impressed. This is starting to get down right depressing! Glad you got the courage to go outside and build the snowman with your little guy!
You think you have it bad! Woke up this morning and brewed a cup of coffee in my single cup coffee maker, looked out the window and saw snow on the ground and noticed it is still snowing!
I live in Michigan and last week the temps were in the 60s! My grandkids were hoping school would be cancelled today, but no such luck.
