By mid winter, every single year since I have had children, I feel like I am losing my marbles. We've been inside too much. We miss the outside and our garden. We get regular old cabin fever. This year has been colder and snowier than in my entire life. So you can imagine the cabin fever this year.
The funny thing is that at the end of every single winter when I look back I see all these funny, interesting and inspired moments. Something about being inside and being "forced" to get creative creates these fun moments.
Moments of random silliness:
Moments of pure sibling love and joy.
Epic dance parties.
Learning new games. Then mastering them.
Being goofy as a family and trying to capture it on camera.
And the obvious quick jaunts out in the cold to shake off the cabin fever.
Even though they drive me absolutely, positively, certifiably insane some days they are fabulous company.
They really are cool little people in the making.
If only I could remember that in the day to day insanity!
