Life With Wee People: Snow Bandits

Stephen, the Blur Minion, has discovered the quickest way into his girlfriend's heart is to barrel down the slide, dive into the snow, then roll your way around the side until it's time to climb the ladder and do it all over again.

I think my fave part of the play-date is when Noah told them to make Snow Angels. Seems they couldn't remember if they should be face up or face down so they did it both ways (LMAO). I kept thinking, "what the hell are they thinking???" but didn't want to interrupt the fun because if you are going to have a snow date the least you can do as a parent is get out of the way and let the wee people freak out. :-)

At one point, between several off the wall conversatons with two of the moms, we had to have a serious talk about stephen's potato fetish. Shorty kept stealing the eyes off the snowman next to the swings and sent the nose packing in a PDD-NOS fit of minature rage when we told him he had to put the spuds back. No ifs, ands or buts about it. I eventually got him to remake the face (which was a big mistake because he took that to mean he could fix them all and started disassembling the other snowman so he could make that one over).

Shorty had to be reminded that Yanidmar et al worked really hard on that puppy and the other kids would not be pleased regarding his sudden reign of terror. When parents freeze their bahookies off so the wee ones can have fun you sometimes have to find a way to get through to the little people that one ought not to destroy yesterday's work for today's brief moment of pleasure. Poor Noah had to attach that arm at least three times. I fixed it once myself. I think Miya may had mended it a time or two as well. However, being Stephen, he was relentless in his quest for destruction. Thus, we had to distract him with the fruit tree that died during the snow storm to quench his hyperactivity.

Stephen gave it maybe two minutes of thought. Noah decided to shoot pictures of trees with his Nikon since this tree had no snow on its branches while all the other trees do. I guess when we get back from showing homes in Briarwood, Queens Village and Fresh Meadows my budding 8 year old photographer will have another wee people perspective to share with you.

I am looking forward to seeing what catches his eye and where our sketching is going to take us tonight. I hear he may be dyslexic (which would explain a lot) so after they test him and I learn more about it maybe I will be able to help him communicate more effectively. I'm playing towards his strengths and his quirky little traits are really starting to fascinate me because he's been expressing himself in very interesting ways.

Gotta run. Got clients to meet and shorties that need a clean change of clothes. We also have to go shopping. Mr Noah wants broccoli with his free range chicken tonight. We're cooking Japanese and have a date to watch some Netflix. My boys love Dr. Who. I think it's the goofy aliens and British accent. ;-)

C- Kids + Snow + Pics = just an easy post to read. Dusting off the memories of all the screaming, and energy wee ones exhort in the snow. Greatest time of your life. Enjoy the ride. I'm hoping for grands...but not anytime soon... but they come when they come. I'll take 'um. Cheers to frozen madness

Very cute photos of your little ones -- enjoy them at this age -- they grow up so fast. All the best.

Awww looks like they were having so much fun! I remember those wee days. Before you know it, they turn into......hormonal teenagers :)

To be a kid again... Those pictures reminded me of snow days as a kid when we would just go out and slide down anything covered in snow.

Hey C.  

Great pictures of the kids.  It's great to see children having fun in the snow.  Hope it meant a few days off from school for them

Hi guys. We've been home from school all week and I must say I am looking forward to taking them back on Monday (LOL). It's been a wild ride having them run amuck every single day all day. Entertaining little ones can get hard when you start running out of interesting things to do. My kids will let you know in a heart beat if they are not interested in doing what you want to do. They are not shy in this respect (LOL). We spent the bulk of our time painting while on break. That may take a few blog posts to explain... Yes, we had wee people drama. Lots of it. :-)

I caught the mother of all colds running the streets with them. They are having a blast while my eyeballs are twitching (LOL). Today is laundry day. This should be very interesting. Of course it means we shall have to go out and play in the snow between cycles. ;-)
