To say we are currently over winter & the bitter cold is certainly an understatement. I’m not sure if it’s the random two snowstorms, make-up school days or the toddler who NEEDS to be on the move … but we are oh so ready for spring!! Like the if it doesn’t warm up soon we may just move to California
kind of ready. Really, we considered it over Valentines dinner. 😉
To cure our major cabin fever, I have been on the hunt for fun indoor activities to do with Waverly Maye. She really is an outdoor girl & would rather play outside all day long in any kind of weather, but as cold as its been, I’ve gotta draw the line somewhere (you know, be the adult & smart one in the situation, still so weird!). So we have done it all … finger painting, flash cards, endless puzzles, play time in the jewelry box & lots of baking. On a side note, I don’t seem to have passed on my love of crafts to Waverly, she tried to eat the paint on our finger painting day & despite lots of attempts at coloring, girlfriend just doesn’t have any attention span for that.
And for last week’s get out of the house but still stay inside activity, my husband & I took Waverly for a frozen yogurt date. Who says ice cream is only for summer?!!
Clearly not Waverly Maye.
We honestly have been limiting eating out lately, mainly because Waverly is not the biggest fan of the high chair. Even if I come equipped with snacks, drinks & all of her favorite toys, she would rather run the restaurant like a mad woman. Yes … we have totally been that couple with the crazy kid, more times than I would like to admit! 🙂
But this date was different, I’m pretty sure Waverly was on a sugar high before she was even halfway done. She could not stop giggling, pretty much uncontrollably, & I’m pretty sure she would have sat in that seat all day long. My husband & I just watched her with the biggest smiles on our faces, truly in awe of our little lady. She really could have bursted from joy at any point, it was pretty much the cutest thing ever. As a mom, I felt proud that Waverly is SO happy, which despite any hard times, is really what matters most. It was one of those moments with the three of us that screamed “little things”, an ordinary activity urned into a memory that I don’t think I will ever forget.
As for now, we are back to hanging inside desperately waiting for the temps to warm up . Tell me this face doesn’t say … mom, are we ever going to go outside again?! Either that or … so when are we going back to that ice cream place! Whatever the case, I’ve been seeing it a lot lately.
