It’s Not All Mary Poppins

Okay, I’m tired of winter now

Check out the line at the bottom of the box.


I guess I should take the tots out. They do love the snow…

And it’s not like we’re not prepared:


Worst case scenario, they get totally and completely buried, they can dig their way out. Or I can use the handle protruding from the snow to find their immersed little snowsuit-clad selves.

  1. There must have been a sale on snow shovels somewhere, or you did the math and found 4 children with shovels was cheaper than a snowblower?(-:

  2. Tiggywinkles, $3.99 each. WAY cheaper than a snowblower. Now, if I could just get them to throw the snow all in the same direction…

  3. Oh yeah. Definitely tired of it. We had snow yesterday, now it’s gone. Hopefully the weather will stay nice now like the weatherman says.

    I’m going to be nice to you right now because I am a compassionate woman, and I know that, though you may not have any snow, you are living in a teeny tiny trailer with a toddler. You deserve to be cut some slack, you poor woman. But when you’re in your comfy new house? All bets are off.

  4. We had a few flakes in the night, not enough to measure. I’d be glad if you sent some of your snow over here.

    You tell me how, my dear, and it’s yours!

  5. I am tired of it too, it seems people had forgotten how to drive in it…..again. My parking area is still being plowed out as we speak.

    Welcome, and thanks for commenting! Snowfalls like this make me grateful we’re not running a car these days. So nice not to have to shovel the drive. Heh.

  6. i love your attitude. oh yes, and your blog.

    very much.

    reminds me of all the stories from my daycare days back when there were no blogs.

    Why, thank you! Just for that, I like you, too, very much.

  7. I need to find pretty, red shovels, apparently!
    My kids would not help shovel on Friday–when school was canceled due to the 10 inches of snow we received Thursday night and Friday morning.
    The hubbie still had to go to work. He took my car (does better in the snow) and I shoveled a path for him to get back into the drive when he got home during the baby’s brief nap.
    When I was done, out-of-breath, sore and ready for a warm shower–that’s when my kids decided it’d be fun to go play in the snow!!
    (They did shovel the back porch/deck so I can’t really say that they won’t shovel–but I don’t plan to spend much time on the deck this week!!)

  8. I’m still giggling, thinking of little red handles poking out of the snow!
    “Mary! I’m over here! No, dig me out first!”

  9. […] make more as we go along! Nor do I include everyday winter activities, like toboggan rides, digging, floundering, and otherwise messing about in the […]
