no kid is bundled better

she stomps her feet in protest
she will not be denied
she wants to build a snowman
she wants to play outside
mom gets out the snowboots
dad gets out the sweater…
coat, scarf, mittens,
hat and love
no kid is bundled better
and now she’s out there in it,
in no more than a minute
she stomps her feet in protest
she will not be denied
it’s wet and cold
the fun got old
she wants to come inside

  1. We seem to replay this scene every winter! Mind demanded to go outside today. Did so, but my husband was worried. I knew it would only be for a few minutes 🙂

    Wonderful write, so well captured!
