Happy Snowversary

Exactly one year ago today, Alexis realized something that has changed her life. She once believed that snow was made of flesh-eating bacteria and wouldn't even consider touching it. She would stand near the snow, staring at it, willing it to vanish, and then would scream bloody murder until I rescued her from the Big Bad Snow.



Then, precisely a year ago, she stuck a toe on top of a few flakes. A toe was soon joined by the rest of a foot, and then the other foot, and she soon evolved into the snow-loving freak that she is today.



Growing up isn't ALL bad, I guess.

  1. Sounds like your kid. Must have been a question about it to begin with, but definitely your kid now.

  3. I remember last year when you talked about how afraid of snow she was. At that age my kids reacted the same way to grass in the spring.

  4. I think she figured if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. This year, you either decide you love the snow, or you walk around miserable. (I would be the miserable one)

    Did you get my email about my friend? You never responded.

  5. So eventually Maggie might get over her Irrational Fear of snow??? I've tried twice to take her out to play. Both times ended in a Big Huge Fail. And screaming. I think the neighbors were scared.
