I find myself feeling a little desperate for Spring to arrive.

Since the day we walked Parker home from the hospital he has loved nothing more than to be outside. Weather has never hindered his love of the outdoors.

I admit, I am feeling guilty. Lately he seems content to remain inside. Have the last three months of staying in ruined his spirits?

The truth is that it is hard balancing one child's needs with the others, but that is true with all families. And although Parker was only two and a half when all of this began I do not doubt that it will affect him. The challenge for me is showing Parker how blessed we are everyday, even when another snow storm hits. But when Spring does come, I will make sure to light that spark under his feet as soon Matilda is ready for a stroll. It will be refreshing.
