Snow Duck

The nice thing about having an independent six year old is that you can dress her up in snow pants and send her out into the backyard for hours with no supervision on a Sunday morning after the nice first snowfall of the year and she comes back hollering "Mommy, I made you a snow duck" and carries said duck into the kitchen, wet boots and all.

Why is everybody annoying the freakish snow-moulding talent? That's a freakin' amazing duck!

Ahhhh, the elusive snow duck. I'm surprised she was able to get her hands on one of those. Those quakers is fast!

Stephen happened to be looking on as I loaded your site, and his eyes lit up. "Hey! We could make a snow mouse, and a snow moose, and..."

She started something.

That is some good sculpting snow! The duck now has a permanent home in the freezer, right?

I don't know what looks cuter--Miss M or the duck. And SHE'S a lucky duck to get enough snow to do that, down here "inside the Beltway" all we got was a dusting on the grass!

ozma said...

Yeah, how'd you get your kid to be independent? Any tips?

I think it's too late for me. But I can dream.
