At least this is what it's like for normal working folks who must drive and function in the stuff. Livy and I had a great day at home filled with hours of books, blocks, low-speed indoor chases, and 10 minutes of frenzied snow play. Because Olivia's not walking yet (But she's working on 3-syllable words. ACT SURPRISED.) and I have no proper cold weather gear for her I expected that she'd hate being out in the snow. But no! She is the Shackleton of the toddler set and charged about like a bouncing bumble until her pants soaked through and she started shivering.
