outside a little

Yesterday was warm. It was in the 40s. I took advantage of the "warm" weather and we spent a lot of the afternoon oustide. It was nice to see Oliver riding his bike and scouter. I think this is first time that I've played outside with him in two months. I know it's terrible and I should be taking him out more, but I hate the cold. Anthony has been great about having him outside. They play for hours in the snow and go on long hikes in the woods.

Tonight while I was in the kitchen working on dinner Oliver came and said he wanted to have a conversation with me. We sat down together and he said "Mom how do I stop growing? " He touched the top of his head and said "this is as big as I want to be. How do I start growing down?" I smiled and laughed at him. I asked him why and never got a straight answer. I think I know what it might have something to do with. Lately we are making him do more for himself and we are telling him that he is a big boy.

We had another really funny conversation the other day. It's a little dirty. Sorry, but I really want to remember this one. Oliver and I were in the bathroom because he said he had to go potty. As I was unbuttoning his pants his "oh shoot Mom, I crabbed my pants." I just laughed and told him that was ok.

Otherwise we are surviving this long winter. We visited my parents in Florida about two weeks ago. We had beautiful weather. It was great to be able to walk around in short sleeves and flip flops. Oliver likes the winter, but while we were there he told me that he was glad that he didn't have to wear all of the clothes I make him wear at home.

Love the milk shake pictures.
