:: :: molasses slow :: ::


i will never be able to wrap my head around this: all of the preschool-aged things we do on a regular basis are canceled this week because of school break. the barnes and noble story hour for ones and twos is canceled. drop-in gym play for kids ages one to five is closed. baby swim class (10-22 months, i think) is canceled.

um. these children are not in school. or to put it another way, it's always school break for them. furthermore, school break's not really on my radar, folks, so when i get my kid wrangled into sneaks and a jacket at the same time and then convince him to actually get into the car and not simply brush the snow off of it or look at it from the porch, i can't help being just slightly rude when you tell me that there's no whatever because of whatever please let us play in your gym please please please.

this week is going by s-o s-l-o-w-l-y, and it didn't even start until yesterday. oh dear. my kid's not even in school yet and already i am counting the minutes until school is back in session.

(the highlight of my super slow day was when evan got excited to see snow falling outside (see images above) and then tried to climb out the window so he could play in it. see how he's even using that stuffed bear to try to get a little bit higher? thank god i had the camera for that one.)

I wish I'd read this sooner... we are well and were looking for company and activities all this week. It was a good week for us, it turns out, but getting together would have been great too. Maybe next week?
