Fix Me A Snack

A blog created by a mom who got sick of feeding her kids crackers and ice cream

Wait. Was today the first day of Spring? I didn’t even know because I was too busy frolicking outside. Well, happy Spring to you! What a glorious Spring it is shaping up to be here. Usually the first day of Spring in New England seems like nothing less than a cruel lie. But it feels like we’ve been transplanted to Virginia this year. Things are fully three weeks ahead of schedule. Birds are making nests. It’s 80 degrees outside. It’s awesome.

My favorite poem right now is about daffodils.

Glorious daffodils.

It’s by A.A. Milne and it’s called Daffodowndilly. Make your kids memorize it.

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
“Winter is dead.”
