The Season of Our Discontent

Meredith is lying on the floor in her new footed-Christmas-jammies (which we had to get in exchange for the two piece ones that she refused to even try on.) She is looking out the window.
She says "I think it's going to be spring soon, 'cause the icicles are melting. "
"Hmm," I say. "I think it's going to be winter for a while longer."
"Well, I can't wait for it to be spring. 'Cause then there are flowers."
I ask, "Aren't you one of the kids who couldn't wait for winter, because then there'd be snow?"
"Well, about a month ago, when I was really young, then I wanted it to be winter."

I didn't even want it to be winter a month ago (and, yes, I was REALLY young then). I'm still holding out hope for spring.

Meredith must have grown up a lot in the past month. It's only us ornery old folk who don't enjoy the snow.

Yeah, they grow up so fast. Who took that adorable picture?

Hey, she's only human. Don't we all want what we can't have? She's darling anyway!

Does she have ice skates? Ice skates and skis make you want winter to stay. When you get really old, all it takes is a good book.
