|our life this week|
One morning at HyVee Stockton REFUSED to get out of the car. We were out of milk, so we had to go inside, but Stockton was throwing a fit. In a last-ditch effort to calm him down, I told him he could walk instead of going in the cart if he stopped crying. He immediately stopped, allowed me to unbuckle him calmly, and was very good about staying with me. Naturally the other kids decided they needed to walk too, so I had three little people following me all through the aisles. Overall they did very well, surprisingly! Donuts helped, as did a visit to the lobsters.
Yeah, let's talk about the cold. For the past three days it has been rare to see the temperature go above zero. This morning when I took the car in for an oil change it was -13 degrees. I just want to be like listen, weather: is that really necessary!? -13 degrees!? But after about 15 degrees everything feels basically the same, just COLD, so now I guess we're used to it and moving on with our lives. It's supposed to be a whopping 20 degrees tomorrow, so get your sun tan lotion out, folks!
It's the kind of cold that just makes you MAD when you go outside!
On Natalie's last day of school I took the boys to play at "Old McDonald's," and they were super thrilled. Stockton finally stopped playing with the door after about 45 minutes and explored the tunnels with Jack. The one bad thing about playing at the playplace is it is an absolute disaster trying to leave. The boys both throw flaming fits, and all the old people enjoying their morning coffee crick their necks trying to see what's going on as I drag my children out the double doors. I try to tell myself it's worth it haha but it's kind of a fiasco every time.
