Spring starts today - that's what the calendar says, anyways. Of course, the gray, windy, weather may beg to differ.
This morning, as I was bundling up the kids and muttering something to myself about March being the cruelest month, forget April *grumble, grumble* my three year old son picked up a discarded catalog from the recycling pile.
"Mama, mama, look, look, you should buy this!" he said excitedly as he pushed a J. Crew catalog between me and his baby brother.
He was pointing at the back cover, where patent leather peep toe shoes mocked me.
"Oh sweetie," I said dumping the catalog so I could bend over and lace up my sensible waterproof shearling boots, "I don't need shoes like that. It's too cold."
"But the green ones are pretty for you Mama! And it will be nice and warm - soon!"
Hang in there Mamas. Spring is on its way. Soon.
