I could whine about the weather because trying to push a double stroller through snow drifts in Manhattan is sort of like trying to futilely jam a new couch through your narrow front door …except your much much colder.

And no, I don’t have a new couch. I could whine about that too.

I am so damn gullible when it comes to March. I always get all happy and sing-songy in anticipation of Spring. And then winter smacks me in the face. But instead of complaining, I’ll just show you a few snapshots of my lovely, beautiful girls.

Tights and a tutu may not exactly be appropriate for snow ball throwing. But I never quite got around to buying them any snow pants this year. Rick may have spent the snow pants money on pricey vodka.

Oh wait, you actually want to hear me whine?

Oh, well you should have said so. Then head on over to the super brilliant Secret Spineless Whine because I’m lucky enough to be their featured whiner today!

    i get all winsome for the city when it comes time to shovel our driveway and sidewalk. i long for the days of a trash chute. heehee.

    yesterday green grass, today a foot of freaking snow.  thank the stars that mass transit into the city was delayed, this way  M stayed home and shoveled.

    I most certainly did NOT spend snow pants money on expensive vodka.  What kind of father do I look like?  I spent it on a new case for my iPhone.  Sorry.  Love the pictures.

  • OHmommy says:

    I have a rule… the snow pants are packed away on March 1st.  They are gone.  I hope mother nature listens because right now it’s snowing and all of 12 degrees.

    Heh.  I hate looooooong winters.

  • jessica says:

    I didn’t buy my kid snowpants b/c the temp never dropped below FUCKING 70 DEGREES. This is not normal. NOt hing about L.A. is normal, not even me.

  • christy says:

    Oh they’re so cute and I LOVE that you let her wear tights and a tutu in the snow. I’m totally doing that when my daughter is old enough.

  • ErinB says:

    snowsuits are over-rated. katherine has one- head to toe- and while she can smile in the snow she cant move. so I have a bunch of photos of her on one place just looking at snow…at least your 2 get to enjoy it a little more – its worth being cold- thats why they made hot chocolate :-}

  • Cathy says:

    I’m jealous of your photos–we’ve had so little snow here in Denver I don’t have any kids-in-snow picture this year. Your girls are so cute!

  • frogmama says:

    I know what you mean. We get one warm day and I feel a kick in my step and am ready to put away the winter clothes. And then it snows. And sleets. And I get out the bottle.

  • I must say, I’m proud of you for holding out until now.  I’ve been whining about the weather since November.  Bah!  Humbug!  Maybe I need some of that pricey vodka…

    Hey…Interesting status on your hubby today. LOL

    Rick is still happily married, and anchoring Studio B on FNC tomorrow from 3-4 pm eastern.

    Oh, and Tito’s is pricey!! I saw it featured and advertised in our SF “Society” mags. That MUST mean its good!!! Poor girls are gonna freeze their tushies off because he couldn’t just drink Svedka??

  • PAPA says:

    Gosh and to think I got whiny cuz it sprinkled here today…. heard about your snowstorm and thought go west Kelcey & family, go west!

  • Gabrielita's mom says:

    You are to be admired. You got two kids outta the house, took cute photos of them smiling in the snow, both wearing mittens AND hats! Someone buy this woman a new couch pronto!

  • I know – snowpants seem like such a rookie parent purchase in DC (like when you buy your newborn an expensive  insulated snow suit and then realize that they’ll outgrow it before it’s cold enough to need it).

    We get snow maybe 2-3 times in the winter, and by the time you think to buy the snowpants, they’re gone. Probably because they arrive in stores in the middle of September when your kids are still running around naked outside (or maybe that’s just my kids…)

    My 3 year old went out to play in jeans yesterday and came back in soaked. And the 2 year old twins weren’t even allowed to go out – much to their dismay. Next year I will have to do better on this…

  • Jaclyn says:

    It hurts me just to see that snow! It was 89 degrees here in sunny Az this weekend..not to rub it in or anything…well sort of. But NYC is way cooler than Chandler Az so suck it up!  🙂

  • Suzie says:

    The photos are adorable! My son has a snow suit from our weeklong visit to NYC last December…his grandparents bought it for him “just in case it snows”. Hah! It snowed for maybe an hour the whole week.

    And sorry, it was 80 here on Sunday–we put on sunscreen, not snow suits. Maybe you need to head west for a visit?

  • Betsy says:

    I did get around to buying snowpants, but we have not had a chance to use them.  We have had record low snowfall and record high temps.  But dont feel sorry for me as we are out at the park in our 75 degree weather.
