Here is Margaret, in the snow, in the swing, on January 2o, 2011.
Here is Ellie, in the snow, in the swing, on December 31, 2012. At, you know, 4:04 pm.
So that’s something. And in looking for the picture of Margaret, I found the blog post that went with the picture, and reread it, and realized that I have not learned much in two years of parenthood.
Because the smiley baby in the picture became a not-smiley baby when a load of snow fell on her from the branch above.
And indeed, that is why we are now inside, because left to Margaret, we would still be outside, freezing in the slushy, wet, nasty snow.
