Well, the Nemo blizzard of 2013 came and went. Our house had over 25 inches of snow surrounding it and I watched as two of our neighbors with plows got stuck and had to have the rest of the neighbors come by and dig them out. Needless to say this weekend was spent indoors, for the most part. We did get out with P anytime it wasn’t completely terrible out but that was frustrating to everyone since she had about 1 by 10 foot walkway to explore.
I must say that being stuck indoors 6 months pregnant (no excuse to go shovel snow!) with an active two year old has a lot of challenges. And by a lot of challenges I mean imagine a 2 year old going between frustration, hyper active bouncing off the walls, and more frustration. We colored, played with Play-doh, played fetch (yup, that’s what we do with an active two year old who needs to burn off energy), played tea party, played kitchen, played blocks, colored, terrorized the dog, cooked, cleaned, read books, played dinosaurs…the list goes on. I’m crossing my fingers that our daycare is open tomorrow (unlikely since most schools in CT are closed).
On the more positive side, we didn’t lose power (it flickered so much Friday night that Jon and I were holding our breath) and everyone is safe and sound. So all in all it wasn’t too bad.
And here’s what a toddler that hasn’t been out of the house except for about 20 minutes looks like. (If you’re on Vine, a video montage social media app), come follow me! username: mrslltkings)
If you were affected- how’s everything? Did you get a lot of snow? Did you lose power? I can’t imagine what this would be like if we lost power.
