All I can say is thank all the gods for Veggie Tales because by the time I got us back in the house, I was in no condition to do anything other than hit "play" on the dvd player.

Lessons learned here: Until he is old enough to climb a hill with a sled and then ride it down by himself, sledding is a two adult job. Also, if this is how outdoor excursions are going to be for the conceivable future, then I need to start doing more cardio, because daaaayum.

Isn't the first rule in child care cardio?

Dude, see my post about walking to school on unplowed sidewalks... apparently walking in snow over your knees is THE most exhausting thing EVER in the WORLD. I have no idea what's up with that. So don't feel too bad. Once the snow gets smushed down a bit more, it'll be fine.
