Spring | The Life of K: Spring

Thursday, April 21, 2011


Spring is finally here! The weather is milder, it's not pitch black until well after dinner and the snow is almost all gone. People are outside, the grass is getting green and there are leaf buds on the trees. It's such a nice change after the blah of winter.

Baby J is absolutely loving that he gets to play outside so often and will often beg to go out. He's funny - he asks for his shoes and makes you put on his coat and hat. He loves running around the driveway and playing with the neighbour kids or hanging out with his dad in the backyard.

The other part about spring and warmer weather is bad. Spiders come out. Well, all sorts of bugs do too, but in the house it's spiders. The basement is the worst. Big black spiders, that I'm sure are eating the cheerios that are under the couch, gross me out and freak me out.

One night I went to pick Baby K up in her bouncer to bring her upstairs and I almost stepped on one. I jumped and woke her up. There were another two spiders near the stairs. When J got home I made him go downstairs and kill them all.

Yuck yuck yuck. It's the worst part about spring. Just thinking about it gives me the shivers.


  1. It's been pretty gross and rainy here so we've been staying inside but today looks sunny and nice so hopefully our weather is taking a turn for the better too!

  2. I know exactly what you mean, except I'm on the other side. I get home and my wife tells me to kill the spiders she found. I have no idea how you guys find them all.
