Before spring break Zoe had the sweetest ballet recital. It took some convincing to get her to tone down her hair accessories and to wear only pink (and not gold and purple too).

I forget that Zoe is new to some things. Even though this is her third winter (ever) she has only just recently realized SNOW. She is also a bit obsessed with her birthday and has been asking ever since late spring when her party is gonna happen – my answer? ‘In the winter, when it SNOWS.’ So now that we’ve had an early snowfall (early by NYC standards) she is especially excited by snow, even though she still has to wait 2 more months for her birthday. Ezra has always been a little indifferent about these things, but being the first child we would put him out in the first snow fall with so much enthusiasm. We’d wait for his reaction to all that cold, white, good stuff – and we’d be disappointed by his lack of interest or worse, by a wail indicating that he didn’t like the stuff at all and wanted to go inside. So I was completely surprised when I heard Zoe’s giggles from the stroller (as I tried to roll her over a couple mounds of snow this morning en route to Ezra’s school) and she begged to come out and ‘crunch on it’ (her words). She kept saying “I having fun!” and yelled at the plow for taking ‘her snow’ away. And several times she exclaimed “I so happy!” but I could swear she at least once said “I snow happy!”
