I have to confess I’ve been a little envious of all the snowy photos I’ve been seeing across social media in recent weeks. We hadn’t had any snow here so I was very excited to see a light dusting across the lawn when I opened my curtains this morning.
The girls didn’t quite share my enthusiasm – they looked out at the garden and then wandered off to play with their toys, looking at me like I was slightly deranged as I rushed around the house singing “Do you wanna build a snowman?” whilst trying to them fed and dressed as quickly as possible so we could go out and play before it all melted away.
Despite having never seen snow before, Sophie seemed fairly nonplussed about the cold white stuff out in the garden and was more interested in opening and closing the windows of the playhouse and playing peekaboo. Jessica on the other hand wanted to build a “Snowtubby” (she’s a little obsessed with Teletubbies at the moment) and was discovering that going down a snow-covered slide was a lot of fun as it made the slide much more slippery. Sadly there wasn’t really enough snow to attempt to build a Snowtubby but there was at least enough to have fun picking it up and throwing it in the air.
We all enjoyed our walk to toddler group in the snow. Sophie’s only done the walk there a couple of times (she usually gets carried in the Tula) and it was lovely to see both the girls running around together having fun outdoors. Sadly the snow had all melted away by the time we left toddler group and headed home again but it was fun while it lasted!
