While we were on the Cape this weekend, it snowed here in PA.
Other than a slight coating on Christmas Eve, it was the first real snow that has come our way.
New Year's Day was our first day back home and was the last day of our Christmas break so we had declared it a PJ day.
We were all going to enjoy our last day together as a family.
Reags found her way to the "ballet bag" where we keep leotards, tights, and skirts for dress up. She is known to come home from school and change into her "ballerina" attire within minutes of walking through the door. She loves them, so I did not think twice when I saw her do it on Tuesday..... but then, she put on her hat, gloves, scarf, and rain boots and sat at the window looking at the snow!
It was SO SO cold and I could not believe that she wanted to go outside to play, but she said she did. I told her that she needed to put warm clothes on her before she could go out and she downright refused to let me put pants on her, so...
I opened the back door and let her go out on the porch in her skirt assuming she would feel the cold air and come running in for her pants.
Well I assumed wrong....
She played and danced around out there as happy as could be!
I must have asked her 10 times, "Reags honey, are you cold? why don't we put some pants on your legs"
"No Mommy, I am fine, I no like pants"
She lasted about 20 minutes before she decided it was time to come in and warm up!
Oh this child..... she has a mind of her own and at times, and there is no reasoning with her.
We sailed through the "twos"..... there was nothing "terrible about two".
Three on the other hand? Let's just say, she is testing the waters with us.
Looking back, both Sarah and Nick were like this at three, I guess you just forget the stages until you are going through them again.
Even when our Spicy girl is testing us, I cannot help but giggle on the inside.
She is about as tough and determined as they come:)
