I have learned that I don't love snow...or ice...or cold. I am the Scrooge of winter. In other news
I also learned that they actually make battery powered heated socks...
I have learned that you are never too old to be homesick. My parents moved from my childhood home this summer and I have ached and longed to sit in front of its big fireplace all winter long. (see cold feet above)
I have learned that what messes life up most is that we have a preconceived notion of what it's supposed to be. I have read a quote several times saying as much, but I read an excellent article by Sally Clarkson that drove that point home.
I have learned that whether you are 6 or 36, ET is probably going to make you cry. We had a family movie night this weekend and while my boys aren't quite old enough to "get" it, my daughter loved it. She cried, I cried...I somehow felt like I was doing something right as a parent!\
So what did you learn in February? Anything you're hoping to learn in March?
