Also, I award myself about five billion Parental Brownie Points for standing outside on the ice for twenty minutes without complaint — well, without voicing any complaint, anyway — while it was -20C and I’d already been outside five times that day.
We finally got home (after MORE outings) around 6:30pm and I think I finally warmed up around 11, despite carrying a hot water bottle inside the front of my bathrobe for the intervening hours. Brrrrrrrr.
