Day 15 | Reunited

I’m sure he missed us all, but I’m positively sure he missed his little buddy the most.

Tonight Davey woke up a little after going to bed and was quite confused.  He was crying about the train, the airplane, going to “Mama’s house”, and how he didn’t want to go on or to any of those.   Only two seconds later to shriek that he wanted to go on or to any of those.   Poor kid.   Traveling is tough for adults, let alone a precocious three year old.

He did well, but there will be no more traveling, in his future, for a long while.

It’s time… It’ time to buckle down into the second semester of school for Ze Bigs.  It’s time to get back to routines.  It’s time to readjust and breathe easier.  It’s time to develop a menu and exercise plan.  It’s time to be positive and it’s time to leave the negative behind.   It’s time to kiss goodnight and wake up refreshed and ready to face the day.

Time is like the wind, it lifts the light and leaves the heavy.

Let it snow, yo!

Day 8 | Let it Snow

There’s something to be said for being born and raised in a place like Buffalo.  The winters are long and relentless. Or so it seems.  I never realized it before, but I actually kind of like it. 

With kids, though, it can be a lot of work. Years ago, when ‘ze bigs’ were ‘ze littles’, I remember coming to my parents’ house in Orchard Park from our house in Cheektowaga.  I’d pack up all our essentials, get everyone bundled up like Randy from A Christmas Story, and we’d pile into our old, boxy, green minivan.   I never batted an eyelash at the 20 minute drive on I-90, even if it was snowing or if there as a chance of snow or ice.  That’s because as Buffalonians we are prepared from a ripe age.  We know how to drive in inclement weather.  We pull up our boots, pull on our hats and gloves, take up our scrapers, and we always remember to turn into the spin and pump the brakes!

Peace, yo!
