Snowed In

We have been snowed in the last couple of days.  It has been snowing non stop here.  I think we got 14 inches in 24 hours!  Scott's college was cancelled yesterday and today.  Too bad he can't even enjoy his snow day since he has been sick and up in the night puking!  

I think we are getting a little cabin fever here.  We haven't been out hardly at all.  I can tell it is definitely hard on Ryley.  She just needs to get outside and run around and let all of her energy out!  I can't wait to be able to go to the park again.

I was able to get out on Saturday and run around BY MYSELF!!  It was so nice.  Scott was home with the kids and told me to take as much time as I needed.  It was too bad that in the middle of running my errands he called and sounded stressed out (mostly with Ryley who is DEFINITELY in the terrible two's stage) and I could tell he wanted me to come home.  I guess I can look at it kind of like a babysitter.  They come over to watch your kids, but they aren't used to them, so sometimes it can be overwhelming.  Since Scott is gone most of the day, he really only has about 3 hours with the kids until they are in bed.  So I can see how it can be overwhelming watching them for 5 hours by himself! 

When I went in Kirye's room this morning to get him he was standing up and holding on to the side of his crib.  I wondered if he had been there for a while and was afraid to sit back down.   He has just started doing this and is pulling himself up on everything now.  It is fun and I can see that he will probably be walking by a year.  I can't believe he is almost 10 months old!

Time certainly flies! I was going to suggest an indoor bubble blowing adventure, but with all that energy, it could be a fiasco...
