Spring Break

Spring break as a mother is definitly different from the whoo hoo lets party days of college. This is my first real spring break as a mom, the past 5 years I'm not sure I even noticed that spring break was occuring except that our regular haunts were extra crowded with older kids. It is exciting to be able to sleep in and not be so rushed in the morning no snacks to pack, no lost shoes to find at 8 am. However, keeping a 5 and 4 year old occupied for 14 hours straight is a challenge. We had our extra special trip to the childrens museum yesterday which was a blast! It has been quite a while since we have gone and it is fun to see how independant they have grown.

This morning we woke up the kids yelling "its snowing its snowing!". Not exactly what we were wanting to hear when all mommy wants to do is rush my little monkeys out the door to the park. But they had fun running around in the front yard 9in the pjs at 7:30 this morning catching snowflakes on their tongue. I will keep my fingers crossed for warmer weather tomorrow so we can acctually go to the park.
