My Life - I love the weather


Ever notice how when the weather finally gets warmer people are a lot happier? Winter is so depressing. I love actually seeing the sunlight. The snow is finally melting and we might actually see 60 degree's this week. My kids are so excited. I took my truck and vacuumed it out and washed it today, which everyone else was doing also. Everyone was so friendly and in such good moods. It must be the sunshine. I am having a hard time with the time change though. I have a feeling that it is going to be tough getting my kids to bed and waking them up for school in the morning. My husband took my son to work with him for alittle while today and I took the girls out for their favorite lunch. They love the Chinese buffet in town. Except today they did not have the almond chicken they both love, so they were disappointed. Still I thought we are having mother daughter time, and then my 2 year old decides that she is going to have a melt down over I am not even sure what exactly. I swear everyone in the restaurant was looking at us. It never fails things hardly ever run smoothly when I try to have some quality time. After lunch we then attempted to stop at the grocery store. First we spent 15 minutes in the restroom because my 2 year old could not decide if she has to poop or not. She finally decides not, so we are off shopping she refused to sit in the cart and since I was just getting a few things I let her walk. She was riding on the end of the cart and somehow got her foot stuck and being the drama queen she is she screamed like she was dying. I swear half the store came running. It was not really her foot that was stuck it was her fancy black boot, (that she insists on wearing everywhere) so all I had to do was pull her foot out of the boot and then take the boot out. Simple right? Nothings ever simple with a 2 year old. She thought it was stuck there forever. Needless to say I am sure we left quite the impression on everyone in the store. My older kids never had the tantrums like my youngest. I used to be one of those Moms that would say I will never let my kids run my life. Well that lasted until my youngest daughter was born. She has always been so high maintenance. I find myself giving in just to get her to be quiet, which I know is wrong but nothing works with her. I was just telling my girlfriend yesterday that she seems to be getting better. Well that was until today I thought that. Oh well kids, gotta love them.

I agree that everyone seems happier when the weather starts getting warmer. I think its not only the weather though. I think it also has to do with what you do when the weather is nice. I love playing sports and being on a team so in the winter i don't really play sports because basketball isn't really my thing, and at my school its ether that or wrestling. In the fall i am happy because i play soccer, and in the spring it is because of lacrosse and i think i am happy in summer because there isn't any school!

lol...I know...I shouldn't laugh as it must have distressed you both in the supermarket and restaurant. Kids...as you say "You gotta love them!" Even when they are being little terrors, for reasons known only to themselves. ;)

I love winter here...but then we don't get snow here where I live. The winters are great but never long enough for my liking. I love wearing winter gear...one can always dress to be warm but it's difficult to dress to be cool...that's why I get around home in sarongs mainly during our hot summers.

hmm have no chance yet to experience a winter day; as for kids, sometimes we don't really know what is best for them; we just could hope....
