Ryder's Snow Globe

We bought Ryder a snow globe yesterday for fun- so he could get excited about the impending snow. He stared at it for hours, turning it this way, and that.....shaking it upside down, watching the snow swirl around the happy snow man. At bedtime, he wanted it right beside him, so it could snow in his room before it started snowing outside. He picked it up....and then...crrraasshhh.. shattered to a million pieces on the hardwood. His face was red, and he whimpered, "I'm sowwy Mommy.." Poor guy...I gave him a hug and told him that it would still snow, as I tucked him into bed. This morning, he was enthralled. He's loving the snow- and I told him the snow man was happy too. He was free from his snow globe, and he got to feel REAL snow.... Have a wonderful snow-filled evening..
