Well, 40 degree days may not seem balmy to many of you. But, coupled with a little sunshine it's a reason to celebrate around here. The first day after a series of gloomy gray ones and I determined we wouldn't let anything keep us in doors today.
Sassy was full of spring fever and wasn't having anything to do with a coat--that was until she'd been outside for about a minute and a half. Then she made sure I zipped her up and pulled up her hood. What can I say? Experience is the best teacher and I simply let it play in my favor.
It's been fun to introduce Sophia to the great outdoors again--even though not all the snow has gone away.
In fact, I found out we're supposed to get more snow later this week! Of course, I heard that only AFTER I had the car washed. I have vague memories of my little brother screaming through a carwash as a toddler and it all came flooding back when Sophia got a good look at the crazy looking machine. "I don't like it--wash!" was her first response. Followed by a panicked little cry. So I tried to translate the car wash into one of Sophia's favorite activities--a bath. 'Now the car is getting its head scrubbed! Scrub your head! See, now we're washing off the soap. Can you say bye-bye to the soap?' I don't know if they had a video camera inside the car wash? But if they do--someones trying to figure out what that lady was doing--acting like she was getting clean along WITH the car.
