Windy Wednesday Walk

Mornings like this morning are ones I do not look forward to. Besides the usual chaos in trying to get the girls up, dressed, fed, and hair done all in about 20 minutes Maryn has been a bit on the "edgy side" lately. She has definitely left the sweet baby stage and is WELL into the terrible toddler times. Today is one of those days where I just wanted someone to take her, or maybe me away for the day.

It was pretty chilly this morning, well around 50 degrees, but the wind was gusting to 40 miles per hour. We decided to go full speed ahead with our morning walk which wasn't the most pleasant. Our walking route isn; tthat difficult even though some mornings it seems like this one particular part of it seems like we're climbing Mt. Timpenogous. Of course today with the wind so vigilent the entire walk was a bit harder and "Mt. Timp" was extremely hard because we were walking into the fierce wind. The kids were okay but let it be known they were not particularly fond of the cooler than normal circumstances. They buried themselves, heads and all, underneath their blankets.

*What's your advice on a grumpy toddler with a mind of her own? How can I get her to stop shouting the two words she uses most often?- NO & STOP!!!*

Man, I wish I knew what to do about the grumpy toddler. I must hear no about 1000 per day.

I'm impressed you still went for your walk even though the wind was so strong.

I don't know what to tell you about your toddler troubles. I'm just glad I don't have one anymore.

You forgot to add in the dialogue about the doggie thing too. No matter how much I tell Luke to be quiet he just doesn't listen. Please do enlighten me when you find something that works!
