This weekend was gorgeous! We were outside a lot and loved the fresh air. We were both happy running around at the park, drawing with chalk on the driveway, and blowing bubbles. Last weekend we got hit with a big snowstorm and went sledding. Before the snow came in, I searched several stores for a sled and could not find one! Lo and behold, right when I was about to give up, I stopped at a mom and pop hardware store and found a large selection. We were set and Sidekick had so much fun! Who knew that carrying a 30 pound toddler up a huge hill over and over again would be so exhausting?!
Sidekick's little brain never ceases to amaze me. Things that come out of this kid's mouth make me chuckle. Here are a few recent conversations:
Me: "I love you, *Sidekick*"
Sidekick; "I love you too and a half, Momma." (Because he is after all 2 1/2 and not 2 anymore!)
It was "Wear Blue or Red" at school the other day. I explained this to Sidekick and dressed him in a red and blue striped shirt. Here was our conversation:
Sidekick: "Momma, I have to wear purple today."
Me: "Why? Today is blue and red day."
Sidekick: "Because blue and red make purple!"
In addition to "Wear Red and Blue" day, he had crazy hair day that same week. He wanted purple and blue stripes, "Like a zebra, Momma."
