Last year on this day we played outside. Today, I am trying to distract them, because I couldn't get the clothes clean after the last mud puddle adventure. It is 60 degrees today...warmer than last year, I am guessing, because of Suvi's hat.
They both love to dig in my little garden in front of the house. I have tulips there, but they mangled them pretty good, so it looks like we might have 2 or 3 flowers opening soon! The storm last night woke Suvi a couple times. I am kind of a wimp for storms myself, so i have great compassion for the 2 year old who calls me from her crib, and says, "I scared." She didn't even cry, but she was definitely not fired up on the thunder and lightening! I was smiling thinking how we'd be seeing a greener day today! I peeked out the window to see if the tulips felt encouraged by the overnight soaking. Maybe I should go out and talk to them...tell them it will be worth the struggle. I see 3 white blooms 2 doors down. I'll just have to enjoy the neighbor's toddler free flowers :)
