Must Be Gremlins


Hates being annoyed as soon as I wake up… so here goes the start of my day, mind you, it is only 8:32am and I already have complaints. So last week I was complaining on facebook about how many pairs of mittens Shay has lost already and its only the beginning of January. Not missing a mitt from a set, but 7 full sets of mittens. Our colder weather started off slow in Atlantic Canada this year, well in New Brunswick anyways because we had an “Indian Summer”. I was wearing just hoodies without a coat beginning of December. If any of you are familiar with Canadian winters, you know that’s probably without a doubt, our longest season. We get snow in April/May sometimes. Anyways not only has she lost mittens but also 4 hats and a pair of ear muffs. So early this morning, I frantically searched for a hat.None.She did however have one yesterday so I must have a hat/mitten gremlin that comes along and swipes em all while we sleep. After 25 minutes of a Where’s Waldo type of hunt for Shay’s hat, I gave up.  Whatever. Her coat is brand new, with a nice thick hood so off to school we go. It wasn’t cold out this morning so I figured let’s walk up to school, since it is only 5 minutes away. Which was a God awful,horrible idea considering the sidewalks were nothing but sheets of ice without any sand or salt on them. So the normal 5 minute walk turned into a 15 minute walk as I watched Shay try and maintain her balance as best as she could while almost wiping out not only once, but 7 different times….My day just started and its already a bitch. Uggggggh. 

Hope you all are having a much better start to your day than me. Good morning. Time for some hot tea and a hot shower. love to you all xo

  1. we thought my brother was always losing gloves until my mom found out he was cutting them up. Little boys are strange I guess 😛 My mom used to connect my mittens with string to keep them in my coat when I wasn’t wearing it. Maybe that could help you.
