Snow Man Boy

Every year of his life, so far, it has snowed on Roan’s birthday. It’s something he counts on, and he fully believes that the world just somehow knows to celebrate in this fashion. This year was possibly the best snowstorm yet. It began during his birthday party, which amped up the already super-hyper vibe of the day. It lasted all day, and left our fair town covered in a blanket, which was obviously begging to be rolled around in.

I don’t know if it’s because he was born in December or if he’s super human or just super weird, but my boy feels no cold. He can be found with an unzipped coat on the coldest of days, no hat, no gloves. I gave up the fight when he was old enough to express his needs verbally – I figured if he was cold, he’d tell me and that I could end the epic struggle to force him into warm clothing. So far? In his six years? He’s not asked for the warmth yet. And while it chilled me to shivers just watching him bury his body in the snow this weekend, the strange little child couldn’t have been happier.

  1. I’m glad you got to enjoy the snow! I was so sad on Sunday when I woke up to only a dusting in Ulster County! :(!! It’s not very often the City gets snow and we don’t! Looks like a blast though!

  2. we got a similar dumping down here in Baltimore. glad to see the kiddo got a chance to enjoy the snow!

  3. Not me! I don’t want the snow touching any part of my body when I’m out playing in it. Except maybe my hands when I want to make a gloveless snowball.

    To illustrate, my husband threw a snowball at me yesterday, which landed expertly in the minute space between my hat and my collar. I screamed as melting snow dripped down my back. It was an agonizing thing of winter perfection. I have to give him credit.

  4. What an enjoyable child he is. I loved the time we shared.
    Can’t help but love you so much.

  5. We are a bunch of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in our community. Your web site provided us with helpful info to paintings on. You have done a formidable job and our entire community might be grateful to you.
