“Everything is Awesome” has replaced “Let it Go” and “Do You Want to Build a Snowman“at our house.  The snow and ice are gone.  We were really lucky and never lost power.  However, we did follow the advice of the robocall from our mayor and stay home.   The twins watched I am not sure how many hours of television but I know it was a lot.  It does not bother me the way I thought it would (before being a parent when I had all these big ideas about what kind of parent I would be. . .).  Originally, I was going to be one of those parents that did not let their kids watch too much TV but Sawyer’s death quickly changed that.  It seemed much better for the twins to watch Elmo than to watch their mom crying endlessly.  So, on went the TV.

We did make it out of the house yesterday for some sledding.

Today it was almost 60 degrees in Atlanta.   Everything melted, we turned off the TV and went outside.

Happy Valentines Day from our house to yours!

  2. Thanks for giving me hope of spring and 60 degree days.

  3. The sledding looks fabulous. So do the kiddos. Sometimes when the weather keeps us inside we have to do whatever we can to survive. That happens in our house lots :). Take care dahlin’.

  4. Glad you got out and enjoyed the snow!

  5. Hey–sometimes you just have to do what you have to do! Glad that you did make it outside in the end!
