Pittsburgh Snow Day

30 Dec

It’s been snowing steadily in the ‘burgh since December 26. I’ve done everything I possibly can to stay indoors. Baby Beez is of another mind. She’s been excitedly shrieking “IT’S SNOWING” every time we step outdoors, and has been begging to build a snowman. She was so eager to play in the snow, that when I told her she has to wear snow pants and boots and gloves and a hat if she wants to play in the snow, she put up no fight whatsoever. This is coming from a kid who refuses to wear hats. She was desperate for that snow. So even I, hater of all things cold, bundled up and took the little one into our backyard for playtime. And Baby Beez was right, it was magical.

You can’t have playtime with a toddler without some yelling.

She decided the snowman had worn the hat long enough, and it was time to take it back.

Snowy Pittsburgh

27 Dec

When the snow starts falling in Pittsburgh, this California girl prefers to stay indoors until Springtime breaks. The snow started yesterday, and I was thrilled that I had already arranged to have the day off. The roads were still snow covered today, and as I lazily awoke and stumbled about the house, I considered staying home today as well. After all, it would be a slow day and everything I needed to do, I could do from home.

Then Baby Beez woke up. In rare form.

Yet another blurry picture, because this kid never sits still. Here she is breaking in her new cowgirl boots with a little boogie. She was bolting around the house. Suddenly, grown up time in the office sounded perfect.

Coffee and privilege logs and pleadings. And I got to pick the music.
