  • Snow Gear

    Another snowstorm is going to hit us this week! We have had plenty of snow this year, and I am hoping it's the last one. On a positive note, my son has been well educated in what to wear when playing outside in the snow. And I think this weekend he will feel as though we are not forcing him to wear his snow gear which includes; snow pants, bubble jacket, boots, mittens, and a hat. I think he will just enjoy putting on the layers of clothes. Let's see how it goes. :)

  • Little Snow Plower

    This past weekend we had some snow which required us to take out the shovel and do some hard labor. Before we went outside, my wife and I decided that our son should play in the snow while we clean up the drive way. We bundled him up, and told him to go play outside. Once we started plowing the snow, our son decided that he rather help us instead of playing in the snow. So, we had to teach him how to get rid of the snow. His enthusiasm to helping us was great. Our little snow plower is already adapted to New Hampshire winters.

  • Snowstorm Aftermath

    My wife and I took our son to the center of town to show him Snowstorm Nemo's aftermath. Here's a picture of him next to a pile of snow. As parents we are always wondering what our son is thinking. In this case, he must be wondering where did all this white fluffy stuff come from, and how come my parents don't want me to eat it?

  • Blizzard Nemo

    Due to Blizzard Nemo, our plans are pretty simple this weekend. Just play in the snow, watch movies, and eat comfort food. For us this is the perfect way to spend our Saturday and Sunday. Also, ironically, this winter storm will get our 15 month old son to play outdoors, and not be stuck inside the house. When it snows, it always seems to be warmer. So, I expect the little eskimo to run around like a mad man in his winter gear, and hopefully, once he's done playing all he wants to do is eat and sleep.

  • Hurricane Sandy

    Our son was born on the day of the unusual October snow storm of 2011. This year we were hit with Hurricane Sandy on his birthday, and we were very lucky to have come out of it safe. I wonder what weather event his second birthday will bring. All we can say is that these natural disasters make you appreciate the important things in life...family, friends, good health,and safety. We wish all the families who were hit hard by the storm a speedy recovery to their normal way of life.

  • Falling In Love With Fall All Over Again

    The great thing about having a child is that it makes you appreciate things you take for granted. For the last few years, I thought of fall as a time for yard work and raking leaves. However, this year I have rekindled my love of the season. My son is delighted with the brilliant colors of autumn, the crinkling noise leaves make under his feet, and the graceful way a leaf floats down from a branch. I love his enthusiasm for all things big and small.

  • Spring Sampler

    The weather was so nice today that we should have taken our little man out for a stroll. We completely missed the opportunity of enjoying the fresh air while while our son either sleeps in his stroller or relaxes in it and gets a sun tan. I guess we need to seize these precious days. Looking forward to Spring!!!!

  • Snow Days

    Our son was born on the day of the fluke October storm. And his four month birthday is marked with the current winter storm. As I watch the snow fall, I imagine the future snow days that my son will celebrate. I am sure he will pray for no school, and when his wish comes true he will say, “hooray! no school.” Than he will do a little dance, and jump around. I am sure that he will be the one that tells us that school is cancelled and what his plans are for the spontaneous vacation day. He will want to play outside in the snow, watch cartoons, and eat good old hot comfort food and drink hot chocolate with extra whip cream. Hopefully, my wife and I will get a snow day off from work so we can say, “hooray! no work! Than we can all horse around in the snow together.

  • Warm Weather

    We wanted to take our son out earlier today for a stroll, but it was freezing outside. I believe it was 15 degrees Fahrenheit. So we opted to just stay indoors. We did not want our son to freeze and catch a cold. So, it will still be a while before the weather becomes warmer to take the little one out, however I just can’t wait. It’s going to be a lot of fun taking him to the park, beach, and city, or at least around the block. Dear warm weather, please come soon!

  • Text Message We Recieved

    Here is a text message we received from my son’s aunt. “You know according to Bhagavad Gita when lord Krishna was born, he brought heavy winds and storms. So did my nephew Rohan bring the heavy snow and cause power outages throughout the east coast??!! Is he going to be as divine, powerful, and a playboy as Krishna?:))” Only time will tell what super powers my son will have. It seems he already has divine power over his mommy. All he has to do is squeal, and she jumps to serve his needs. I wish I had that power.

  • Forecast Calls for Showers

    Weather person said it was suppose to rain during labor day weekend. So far they have been completely wrong. This makes me wonder about how prepared I need to be when going out for the day when I have my kid. First of all, do I even need to be prepared? Is it worth packing rain gear when it looks beautiful outside, and when I feel the weather person is usually wrong? Second, even if it rains, we can just head indoors quickly. Why bother carrying all this extra stuff. We can just get back in the car, and spend time at a museum for example. Third, how fragile are kids when it rains? I do not think they will melt in the rain.

  • Rainy Days

    Rain, rain, go away, come again another day. How can you entertain your kids on rainy days without relying on television and video games? I noticed that most of my nieces and nephews can entertain themselves on a computer or tv, but there must be better ways for them to occupy there time. They just can’t spend the whole day looking at the box. So, what else can children do during these rainy days? I really do not know, but I strongly believe that they need activities. I hope I can get my kid to read, draw, and paint. At least that is what kept me busy. Perhaps play board games and puzzles. Something that stimulates his mind. Or if I am ambitious enough, I will take him out of the house. We can go to a friend’s home or visit a museum. Any advice for rainy day entertainment?

  • Heat Wave

    We went to a baseball game with our teenage nephew and it was very exciting. However, the couple next to us had a three year old son who was burning up. He was turning red! By the time we got to the second inning that family next to us had already left. They either went home or took shade from the blazing heat. I guess I will have to pay more attention to the weather when the little guy comes.
