Day #4 Of Snow Day. I'm A Southerner!

Today is Day #4 of a good ole snow day. Insert mass amounts of sarcasm topped off with pulling hair out. As many of you know, I live in Texas for crying out loud. Southerners are not too fond of this weather. If I wanted to live in the frigid cold, by God, I would move to Colorado or Chicago. But I live in Texas. Usually the land of heat and wearing sun dresses in the middle of winter. This year is a whole other ball field. I think hell has frozen over and we are in it. Most of you are moms so you know exactly what I'm talking about when I say that staying confined in your home with a 1 1/2 year old for one day is enough, let alone consecutive days. Oh, such good bonding time we are having. Luckily, Davis has been a trooper!!! We have been painting, reading, playing with blocks, anything to pass the time and stay entertained. Every once in a while I have to do a sanity check and make sure I am still in tact. So far, so good. Mommy's Sippy Cup to the rescue. Also, Michael has been unable to go to work this week as well, so he has also been home with us. Now him on the other hand, he is LOVING this! He doesn't have to go to work, so of course he does. Me? Not so much.

Yesterday, I had enough. We were going out. I didn't care where we went as long as it was somewhere. Maybe to the mall and Davis can play on the indoor playground. They were closed! Ikea, Closed! Target to the rescue!!! We even found a party store that was open and bought decor for our upcoming Mardi Gras party. I am so excited! Genghis Grill was open where of course Davis devoured his noodles and fruit.

Yes, that huge bowl in front of him was allll his! It was a child's portion, however, I'm sure he could have eaten the entire adult portion. He slurps up noodles like a champ! I still love watching him eat. I am a weird mom like that. It is pretty entertaining.

At the end of the day, Davis was not a happy camper wearing his 'winter gear.' Take it off!!!

Slowly but surely, he started to give in. No more fighting.

And throwing in the towel!
"Happy" Snow Day, everyone!

We are on about day 80 like that....ugh. Most of us Northerners are not too fond of this either. This winter has been brutal.
