Oh, Well We've Been Buried... I Mean, Busy

Last Thursday, Tate was the fastest in preschool Olympic history. I mean, it was the first one and all and nobody was keeping any sort of score, but still I am pretty darn sure he was the fastest ever.

Not lacking in confidence, he informed us before the event, "You're going to think I am the best at everything.................... (pause to think).......... Maybe not the cups."

And then it was snowing.

And snowing.

And snowing.

I don't really know how to describe it, other than it just didn't stop for 4 days. And today, I've decided all bets are off on being a good housekeeper and I'm going to just be the mama that makes snowmen and lets her kids paint and manages to get them clean underwear.

You know, most of the time.

Clean underwear is a good thing ;) Besides, they will remember you playing and enjoying time with them more than how clean the house was.

Clean underwear=one up on me. ;-)

How did I know you'd have a "picture perfect" snowman. I wish I had photographed mine before it got buried under more snow--I believe it would be the perfect shortcut to you "getting" me. :-)

If the underwear doesn't smell, it is totally fair game, no?

I adore your son's confidence and your snow fun and your temporary hiatus from housekeeping.

I think I like you. But mostly because I know you wear clean underwear.
