For the beautiful,
that got my kids
OUT OF THE HOUSE!
Cabin fever has been REALLY bad at our house recently.
I blame it on the pretty day several weeks ago when it almost hit 70.
It was too early of a teaser...
we need spring fast...
How dare that goofy groundhog go running back in his hole!
It's just a shadow Phil, it's not like it's a coyote!
Hubs and Ace are not indoorsy boys.
They thrive on "doin work...hard work mommy...I yub it!"
But have resorted to their own,
massive cardboard boxes
a large living room
and an awesome daddy...
who despite mom's warnings that the next time a boy (or girl...but let's face it...she was minimally involved)
climbed on the arm of the blue couch...
up to the top of said couch...
jumped and slid down the boxes...
jumped over the new couch,
onto the ottoman,
ending with a sommersault landing onto the carpet...
and proptly repeating the process over and over...
didn't "STOP RIGHT NOW AND GO TO YOUR ROOM AND PLAY!!"
Taught those children (demonstrated too, of course)
the finer points of an even
One that involved a fast sprint...
(starting in the kitchen)
phasing into a quick bellyflop-style leap...
onto the boxes and across the floor...
ending, of course, at the wall.
(which I was pretty sure daddy was going to take down at one point)
And, thankfully, the weather was finally good enough for Hubs to take the "pishing poles" from V-day out of the packages so that Bug and Ace could practice their "frowing" for all the "pishing" they're going to do soon!
My nerves and furniture and walls just can't take much more cold, wet weather!
