Friday Fun! Random Winter Things

florida snow
Our neighbor has a snow maker. We think he’s pretty awesome. πŸ™‚

The boys were having a discussion about something that happened the night before and it turned into an argument (a surprisingly quiet one). They kept asking me about it saying “Do you believe me Mommy?”

I said, “I can’t take sides because I wasn’t there.”

Charlie said, as if it settled the matter, “Well, I believe myself.”

We took the boys on a road trip to see snow. Because we live in Florida, we had to drive ten hours to get to Maggie Valley, NC. At the time, the only snow was at the commercial locations. Nevertheless, we had a blast watching the skiers, throwing snowballs, building snowmen, and William and I got to go tubing down a snowy hill. At the end of the day, we asked the boys if they enjoyed the snow. William’s response?

“I didn’t like it because it wasn’t real snow from the sky.”

Kids will say random things. They will also pick up random things from the ground. Sometimes this happens at the same time. I have no idea what this is or what it’s used for, but Charlie found this little gem on the sidewalk:

Ooookay! Let’s go look for the faerie who lost it! πŸ˜‰

Going with the theme of random, my boys also fight over random things. Yesterday, when leaving for school, we were ready to head out the door, when they had a shoving match. What were they fighting over? Who got to OPEN THE DOOR! Because there are only so many doors that we’ll open in our lifetime…

I’d love to hear from you!

What are some of the random things that your kids do? Are they ridiculously picky? Do you look back at the weird things they fight over and laugh?

Friday Fun! Secrets…


Charlie comes up to me with his Thomas the Tank Engine alphabet puzzle box. He says, “I got a surprise for you, Mommy. It’s a secret.”

I open the box and act shocked to find the puzzle pieces inside.

A few moments later, he comes up to me with one of his bins full of toys. “I got another surprise for you, Mommy. It’s not a secret.”

“It’s not a secret?” I ask.

He shakes his head.

“Is it because it doesn’t have a lid like the puzzle box?”

I kept the boys out by myself Tuesday night at Lil’ Hands Play and Party, so that hubby could paint the kitchen. Our house, when we bought it, came with flat paint on all the walls, which is a bad choice if you have little boys because itΒ doesn’tΒ clean. I was talking to the boys about Daddy painting while we were on our way home, and this is a comment I heard as we got out of the car.

“I can’t wait to see the kitchen… and I’m hungry.”

Toddler word of the day: “nokay”. A response to a question which always starts with “no” (because that is our favorite word these days) but changes mid-response because maybe a cookie (or ball or whatever) doesn’t sound so bad after all…

During the polar vortex this past winter, it got cold enough here in Florida for my next door neighbor to run his snow machine. πŸ™‚ The boys had been used to the “snow” machines at Busch Gardens and other places that blow out tiny bubbles that look like snowflakes when they fall. When they ran out to play in our neighbor’s real snow, William bent down and scooped up a big handful. He said with utter surprise, “It’s cold!”
