I've admitted in this space that I'm not a fan of making snowmen. I also am not a fan of playing in the snow in general. Don't get me wrong, I love to x country ski, snowshoe, ice skate, sled, go for a run in the snow...even shovel. Anything that's active and keeps you warm. Imaginary play though...much more fun in warmer places. I'm all set with pushing the snow with play tractors. Also, building anything in the snow is work for nothing, as it just melts. There you have it...my confession. Playing in the snow is not my thing.
However, I do make an effort to get out there with them. I remember my parents playing with me in the snow and how special it was to have them make a fort, an igloo, trails in the driveway to follow or a family of bunny snowmen. So, I bundle up and keep my grumbling silent. Hoping they won't think that I was a slug in the snow.
I grabbed a shovel and plant containers.
We (meaning me) made.....
No wonder why I'm not a fan...I'm always doing the grunt work. I was the one who got stuck making the snowman while everyone (including my husband) watched.
