While commenting on a blog a couple of days ago, I was reminded of something Anderson said about the snow and it made me smile…kids are so innocent and so ready to fix things they see that need fixing without letting things get in their way!
A couple of years ago, we had a snow storm followed by another and yet another so that at the end of three or four days, we ended up with about a foot of snow accumulation. It’s very pretty when it is fresh and clean and crisp. But as soon as it begins to warm up a bit, it begins to melt and it gets dirty. Dirty snow is ugly. About two days after the last snowfall, we finally ventured out of the house to the store. The parking lot had been cleared of snow and the snow had been plowed into a huge mountain of snow in one corner. It was about six feet high. Anderson was three then and had really enjoyed playing in the snow so when he saw the snow he said he wanted to go play in it and I said we couldn’t because it was dirty snow and very wet. We weren’t dressed for playing in wet snow. He asked why it was dirty and I explained that it had been swept from all over the parking lot and it had dirty and mud and all sorts of trash mixed in so it was dirty and yucky.
He stopped to think for just a second then he said: “I know Nana! Let’s put all the snow in the car and take it home and wash it then we can bring it back so everybody can play in clean snow!”
Easy peasy! We’ll wash the snow!
