chill in the weather


chilliest days are for no school and double socks...for basking in frosted-over window panes and little ones catching up on quiet messy projects (brought on purely by a boy grounded from all technology in the house and a phoebe who discovered the allure of the clicky pen).
these kinds of days stretch and stretch...for better or worse. fingers are crossed for normalcy tomorrow...in the meantime, i wonder what my chances are of tricking the kids into a nap?

p.s. new year, new blog design! isn't it something special? this one is for keeps. a million thank you's to suzana at THISGIRLDESIGN. i can't recommend her services enough...best $35 i've ever spent. hooray!

  1. You made me laugh. My nine year old daughter was home with me all day and she is grounded from her favorite of favorite...television. It was a long day. At least she had three hours of homework to do. Praying for some warmer weather and normalcy for us tomorrow ;)

  17. We had a technology shut down for my 6 year old too. A full week off brought some more sanity. I wrote about it here: http://oururbanplayground.com/2013/12/screen-time/
