We had our first significant snowfall of the year a week or so ago and introduced Barrett to the fun of outdoor winter play. Only I'm not so sure he thought it was fun....
It didn't start out on a good foot. We pulled on the new snowpants, which I'd bought a long time ago and was happy we finally got a chance to use. We talked up the fun in the snow and the new snowpants and boots. But Barrett wasn't buying it.
I finally got a smile from him and thought maybe it might turn out well after all!
Yeah, not so much.
Needless to say, this did not go well and the snowpants saw about 3 minutes of snow. Oh well! I am absolutely sure that we'll have more than one opportunity in the future to try them out again and I bet Barrett will end up learning to love playing in the snow. As a Chicago boy, he'll have to!
