You’ve Got Mail!
FYI: if you are planning to move to the arctic and have two young children, you should know: getting the mail is a three thousand and twelve step process (times two):
1. Wool Socks
2. snow suit (she loves it)
4. Hat, gloves, neck-gator .... and uh-oh ...
5. this. ("this" occurs after undoing steps 1-4 (times 2) because one had to pee, and the other was over-heating. once "this" is finished, repeat steps 1-4 (times 2).
Not quite ready! 6. Must complete steps 1-4 on-self OUTSIDE, regardless of outdoor temp (sorry fingers). Should you attempt to get yourself ready inside thing one and thing two overheat and collapse into a hot, wet, mess on the floor in which hats, mittens, and boots fly off requiring repeating steps 1-4 (times two) (again).
7. Okay, here we go!
8. The reward (most days)
All in a days work.
