Mar 052013

Step aside, evil winter.  Spring is making some gains and will officially boot your butt to the curb on March 20th.  In the meantime, I refuse to be taken down any further by your nasty, grouchy biting winds and requisite extra 16 minutes required to get the children suited up in hats and mittens any time I try to leave the house.  I’m going to call the positive here and focus on some of the good things about this month:

1. The Ides of March happens on 3/15 and I think this is a cool thing?  I have vague knowledge that this in some way relates back to Julius Caesar.  My husband is now trying not to hyperventilate over my shocking, yet very real, lack of historical knowledge.  I’m sorry, babe.  I suck.

2.  Once in March I won a giveaway.  It was for a box of dog treats, but nonetheless, I won it and this has always warmed my heart to the month of March.

3. We are officially one month closer to summer than we were in February.  (nothing but hard-hitting realizations from this Mom of the Year…).

4. C’mon, who doesn’t love St. Paddy’s Day?  Bring on your inner-Irish!

5. Not that I don’t LOVE preschool drop-off and pick-up, but at this point, it’s only a matter of months before we can bid adieu to the joyful process for spell.

6.  It’s claiming Easter this year.  Yes, my poor daughter will freeze her bum off in her cute little spring dress, but chocolate eggs and bunnies are never a bad thing in my book.  Go you, March, for hosting the Resurrection of Christ this year.

7.  It’s home to today’s version of Finding the Funny!  You know I love this link-up.  I laugh, I squeal, and I laugh some more.  Hands down, one of the happiest days of any month, but today, here’s to you, March!

Shed your winter blehs and ring in spring with some serious funny!

Meredith blogs at The Mom of the Year, dedicatedly earning her title one epic parenting fail at a time. When her kids aren't busy pummeling each other with Legos or requiring their 16th sippy cup refill of the day, she tries to offer quick, relatable laughs for fellow parents of the world and all their empathizers. She remains entirely terrified by crafts, promises to never share any useful household tips, and is fully committed to a less serious look at the world of parenting.

    The thing about March is that I am always convinced it should be 72 degrees outside by now. Then, much like today, I dress wrong and get caught in a blizzard. Yes, of course the meteorologist predicted snow, I just thought he had to be dead wrong. March is spring, not winter, right?!


    YAY for the finding the funny!
