Throw Us a Bone, Al.

4 Apr

When Thomas wakes up in a mood – a sick of being sick for days-on-end mood – it puts everyone in a funk. It’s hard to be happy with a crying, whining boy at your feet ALL day long. Please take the ALL seriously…when he puts his mind to something, he does not mess around… “Today, I only want mama!” We are sick & exhausted and ready for some nice weather so we can open up these windows and get outside! Lila thinks that Al Roker controls all weather and is pretty frustrated with him that we still have to wear winter coats. For the past two weeks when she wakes in the morning, she puts on summer clothes and comes downstairs with excitement. Then, she opens the patio door and with a sad look on that sweet face says, “When is Al going to make it warmer?”

this is what summer looks like – if you’ve forgotten

    Oh my gosh, Lila is hilarious! I would like a word with Al, too, because this is NOT spring.

    By the way, I feel your pain re sick unhappy kid 😦 Hope he feels better soon!

    My 4-year-old daughter also believes that weather person controls weather, whatever icons they use that is what it is going to be. Hope it gets nice soon, it can become endless days when we are stuck inside to long.

    Aww, bless your baby’s lil heart. LOL. Mine has been doing that too–putting on summer shorts and then opening the door to the harsh reality of…crazy, topsy-turvy weather.
