Snowbound

I'm having a random bored moment while Reuben is napping, so I thought I'd take the time to get another post in for all you who check back here with regular frequency. The fact that it is snowing today has kind of bummed me out, even though it's pretty, but I'd been planning to walk over to the grocery store this afternoon and pick up some much needed cream and sugar for my morning coffee...drinking it black just isn't the same. Of course there are some other things we need too, but those are the important ones. ;)

I am thanking the Lord that Reuben is finally having a long nap. The last few days he's been stuck on 30 and 45 minute naps, which makes for a very long day of constantly trying to get him to go to sleep. My brilliant plan to get him to 2 hour and a half naps with a 45 min catnap late in the afternoon has not worked out quite as I'd hoped. If I could just get him past that morning 30 minute nap we'd be all set. *sigh* One of these days. You gotta love how children just seem to run on their own schedule, as much as we try to teach them that there are better ways of going about things...

I've been trying to also get into the habit of taking him outside for short periods in the afternoon. We don't stay out for long because there's really not much for him to do out there other than sit in the snowbank and watch my pathetic attempt at making a little snowman. It melted before I could get a picture taken for you. I think we both appreciate the opportunity, however short, for some fresh air and sunshine.

The last few days I have been having an interesting time looking quite seriously at the option of taking care of kids at our home as a way of having a job next fall without having to leave Reuben. The only thing is that we don't have a whole lot of space in our current home, so theoretically we would have to have moved into a house in order for me to take in enough children to make it worth while. I'm considering seeing if I can find someone who wants part-time care to start potentially in the spring, so I can see how I like it and if it will work out for us or not. We will have to see how things go.

Anyway, I think Reuben will be waking up shortly, so I'll end off with some pictures of him in the snow...what a cutie!
