Eric wanted to get in on the shoveling action too. Notice, though, that he would not keep his mittens on . . . which became problematic later:
And another small storm hit today. I was home with the boys all day and needed to go out and shovel. Eric wanted nothing to do with going outside based on Sunday's experience. So I left him inside while Evan came out to help me shovel. Funny the things you'll let your second child do that you wouldn't dream of doing with your first. I would NEVER have left Evan inside while I went out to shovel when he was Eric's age. In any case, I've had enough snow for the short term. I think we can take a little break for now!
