Inspired by all the snow we have here, Emma was on a bit of a snowflake making binge the other day. She cut out dozens of paper snowflakes and when she was finished, it looked like a snowstorm had blown through our kitchen. Our table and floor were covered with hundreds of tiny scraps of paper, so I handed her the broom and suggested she get to sweeping.Noah and Allie soon realized that they could make a snowstorm of their own by throwing the little pieces into the air. After many of her attempts to combine all the pieces into a single pile were thwarted by her little brother and sister, Emma tossed down the broom in frustration and said, "How am I supposed to get anything done with these little kids around?!" I had to tell her, honestly, I have no idea. I've been wondering the same thing for years.
