I love Nebraska. I really do. Except the blistering hot summers and freeze-your-nosehair winters. It all comes with the territory. We do have wonderful weather for about 50 cumulative days a year.
Right now, blizzard #3 is working it magic all over town. Schools closed, my appointments all postponed to days where the windchill isn't below 30 (I sell real estate and people aren't much for looking at houses when your tromping through tons of snow trying not to get frostbite), and us trapped inside. You see- I'm a little bit of a type A, need to interact with more than just a toddler type. Even if it's a trip to Super Targ.et.
This is all leading up to the point of my post. Declan was getting pretty bored with the confines of our living room today. This happens to little boys who get up early and don't take a very long nap but that's beside the point. So I thought we'd change it up and go hang out in the bathroom. Ha! That sounds redonkulous. After a little hair styling (toothbrush given for entertainment) I decided a photo session was in order. So- setting the scene- small toddler on bathroom counter with unusually over-styled hair chomping on toothbrush and mommy on a little red step stool snapping pictures like it's a Gap ad. In walks daddy early from work. "Um...babe...watcha doin'??" [confused look on face]
Stir crazy, much?
