It's WAY to early to start whining. It's only December 1st and we haven't even left Christmas break yet but still ... still ... I am left here wondering how we're going to make it through. I think snow is beautiful but winter is so limiting. The days turn to night before the work day ends. It's cold outside. Parks are not the friend of a 2 yr old who doesn't like cold wind. It's limits my energetic 2 yr olds physical energy to stay home. Malls offer some relief but my independant girl hates holding hands and is quick as lighting. Maybe some of you know what I am talking about but keeping an eye on a little kid who is not attached by a stroller, sling or hand is nauseating. It's like trying to watch two things at the same time; her and the rest of the world. We tried to get some relief on Friday night by going to an indoor playland. Lucy had a lot of fun and she definately released energy. I hope the germfield didn't plant one in her!
