This morning Teagan came into our room very excited. “Snow! Mama, it’s snowing outside!” Eventually she calmed down, but only until her sister woke up. Then, it started again. She had to tell Ashlin that it was snowing, and pull aside the blind for her to see. Ashlin’s turn to be excited. We get downstairs to get dressed (all the clean clothes are in baskets in the living room) and look out the back door at the snow. By then, it was starting to slow down, though the girls excitement wasn’t. Breakfast was eaten quickly, hardly a complaint or ow for hair combing, socks and shoes put on by the parent of choice of the morning. I had to find heavier coats and hats, mittens. There were some from last year in the girls basket, so these were dolled out. I found one mitten that fit Ashlin, and put it on her. Zipped her up and told her that Stu would get the match from the trunk when they got to the car. Stu couldn’t find the match. When they got to day care, he didn’t want her going in with just one mitten. So, he tried to have her give it to him. She was having none of that. So, Stu tried logic.
“Ashlin, you can’t go in with one glove. Your hand will get cold.”
Ashlin shakes her head. She’s not about to give up the glove.
“How many hands do you have?”
“How many gloves do you need?”
“How many hands does Captain Hook have?”
“So, how many gloves does he need?”
“One.” [“Are you Captain Hook?” “No.” “Then you can’t wear only one glove.” At which point she was felled by my logic and handed the glove over. I outsmarted a two year old. Go me.]

She’s a smart girl :) The snow didn’t stick, sadly. But the flakes did look nice floating down.
