Hi!  It’s 50 degrees outside, which is a lovely hot day in the mountains, especially since this is normally our heaviest snow season.  (This kid still has his coat on in the picture, but I quickly ripped that thing off.)  Get out the swimsuits, slather on the coconut oil, make some popsicles, and pleeeeeeease don’t snow again for a very long time.

We haven’t painted our nails in a while, but today we did.  The last time was almost six months ago, and the last bit of polish just wore off my toes from then, lol.  Today the kids wanted alternating colors.

“Hmm,” he says, picking a letter L magnet off the fridge. “X, for Boy.”

Just before he wet on the floor.

Besides painting nails and wiping up the floor, most of our day was spent outside

…with our silly goats.

They are so scared to come down the driveway with us.  That’s them up there, maaa-ing frantically for us to come back up to safety.

Especially Pippa, who, for all her big horns, is really Big Mama Scaredy-Cat.

I just noticed from my photo files that we also painted our nails three years ago today.  Zia even asked for alternating colors way back then.

She also had a tea party on that day.  This party would never survive now that we have a certain little boy in the house. The tea would be slurped and the dishes smashed with a big stick, I’m sure.

He was safely tucked in my belly that day, away from tea parties and big sticks, and you can see I was one happy mama.  Those were such good days, but I wouldn’t trade them for our stick-smashing, potty-on-the-floor, painted boy-nails, and letter-reading days of right now.

Hope your day is as sunny as ours!

    Oh, mountain living. Surrounded by trees. And sunshine now, too? Wonderful! I suppose I have peeing-on-the-floor days to look forward to as well. My little boy turned two yesterday, and I can sense diaper-free days in our future. Happy day to you!

    Yep, I am taking advantage of these warm days to let him go bare-bottomed. Going potty outside is such a great boyhood experience, and I’m happy to entertain it. :) (Especially since he refuses to go the civilized way indoors.)
