After a small ice storm this week, it’s supposed to clear up. That’s a good thing because we’re planning to head to Portland for the The Vacationland RV & Camping Supershow! Whoo hoo! Okay, I’m not THAT enthusiastic about it because lugging Max and Mason through those things can be quite a challenge. However, Richard is terribly excited about it. I am looking forward to just getting away for a couple of days. While we do go on a date once a week, and run the occasional errand, spending almost all our time indoors this time of year can be a real drag. Mason is only 19 months old and our outdoor winter activities are really limited at this age. It’s just too cold for him most days.

This week’s Maxism:

Mason was whining repeatedly one morning last week because Max wouldn’t share his trains with him. After several episodes of me repeating, “Max! Share your trains with your brother!”, I finally begged, “Max, please… I am getting REALLY tired of Mason’s whining!”

Without looking up, Max replied very matter-of-factly, “Well, I’m getting tired of your whining.”
