Walking with Vivian

27 Dec

So I take the girls out for a “blow the stink off” walk yesterday, just around the block as the wind is kinda cold, and there’s no where to go really. We hit a patch where it looks like a water main has blown or something-ice everywhere. Chaos of course ensues since neither child listens to me when I tell them “Walk carefully, shuffle your feet and pay attention. Ros thinks it’s kinda funny to fall and Vivian just grunts and gets back up.

But then Vivian falls one last time. She struggles to her feet, brushes herself off, and glares at the ice.

“Oh yeah?” she yells. “No Merry Christmas to you ICE!”
