Snowed in!

It has been a snowmageddon in Portland this year. We have had almost 10 inches of snow. Multiple snow days. An adventure in the snow with being stuck on the road for 3-4 hours. 

Chains on wheels, forced for almost a week indoors with mommy going crazy 24/7 food and snack support, sliding on sledges on the side walk and spray painting the snow and ofcourse making a cool snow dude - we have really had it all!

And ofcourse, the one who has derived the most joy out of all this is Manya. She hasn't once complained about the extreme weather. Actually, and I might have to bite my tongue sooner than I know it, but M is quite the sport when it comes to disrupted routines and plans gone haywire. Her maturity at this age in handling disappointments actually surprises me many a times. 
Also, it is such a joy to watch her growing up enjoying all the seasons equally. I hope she remembers these days with great fondness...

In a rather loving and cuddling mood;
Me: Manya you are my heart beat.
(I literally feel the warmth evaporating ...)
A rather indignant M: I am not your heart beat - I am a human being - I talk, i dance, I think. (And then in the most contemptuous tone ever) I am not just a heart beat.
Me: oh heart. ❤️💔❤️
