Mama…touch the snow?! Touch it?!

A couple of weeks ago we had maybe a good 8 hours of snow…it was all melted by the early evening as a warm 40 degree rain moved through.  I woke up that morning super excited because I thought Payton would LOVE the snow!  I showed her the snow from her window that morning and she looked out in amazement…she said “cold?  Mama it’s wet and cold?” followed up with “touch it!  Mama…touch the snow?!  touch it?!”.  So we got all bundled up and headed outside…I had snowman making materials in tow.  Well…she HATED it!  Haha…she did in fact, did NOT want to touch it, did NOT want to build a snowman, did NOT want Mama to touch it, and did NOT even want to walk on it.  Eventually I persuaded her to take a short stroll in it, feel the crunch crunch crunch under her boots, and even touch it.  She only touched it once…but I’ll take it!

Stood and stared for a good ten minutes...
