March is cruel

I wish I had something witty and fun to say, but I have to admit that the snow is really getting to me. I feel like winter is dragging on and on and on. And now the latest 35cm of snow actually covered a third of my living room window. Cruel.
Liam and Nico came back from playing in the snow last night with a new friend. He had been abandoned and nearly destroyed, so the two of them decided to take him home and put him back together. Doesn't he look happy?





So today I decided to bow down to the gods of winter. I accept that there will be snow till June. I will not think about flip flops and tank tops for another 6 months, and in so doing, decided to make Nico a pair of his very own Noro mittens. Woo-hoo him. I am amazed that I remembered how to c/o 2 mittens on one magic loop. Kate must be a much better teacher than she gives herself credit for. Cause I have a serious case of the mama-boob-brain, meaning my smarts are on hiatus while miss Coconut is draining me of all my liquids and, well, sleep.

I was dealing with some serious mama-boob-brain yesterday. Seriously frustrating. I'm hoping it's not permanent :) Does it get better? Cuz I'm looking at my mom wondering...

love the snowman! so cute. ours are pathetic here-we try to build them in the driveway so daddy will have to hit them but they melt before he comes home! :(

Yeah, I wanna know if the mommy-brain-moments ever get less frequent or if I am doomed to be this stupid forever.

Holy moly, that's a lot of snow.
