What is the definition of an awesome Mom?
One who hand-knits a complete winter outfit for my plastic skeleton just to make me laugh :
|Officially the most photogenic plastic skeleton in the world, complete with matching hat and booties.|
I know I said that his furry Halloween sweater was epic, but this is a whole new level of legendary. Ferdy has returned: better, stronger, cuter. Now with more reindeer sweater.

My suggestion for beating the mid-winter blues is to do something completely frivolous or ridiculous, like watching Beauty and the Beast with a bottle of wine, or drawing "ouch!" on your band-aids (the world should know how much it hurts).
Then whenever you start to get depressed (for example, standing outside in the dark when it's -27 degrees Celsius waiting for a bus) you can think "Guess what I did this weekend? Skeleton photo shoot." Guaranteed mood-lifter. Having a great Mom definitely helps :)
I was going to try to make him a pile of snowballs for cool pictures, but I was pretty tired after throwing him up a tree.
