5 Ways Moms Can Tell It's Spring (Before Anyone Else Can)

girl jumping in puddleIt was a long winter, huh, moms? With the cold weather, runny noses, cooped-up kids, and whatnot, it felt like it dragged on and on, and spring has never been so welcome. Maybe it's like that every year, but this year, it feels particularly sweet.

You can feel it in the air, see it in the flowers, and sense it in the cheerful moods of people everywhere. For moms, however, there are some particular things that spring brings -- unmistakable signs of the season that come with children. Most of them are welcome.

For the most part, our spring has been a continuation of winter.  It was in the 30's last night =(

Spring?  What's that?  It's still winter here - it's even snowing now! lol


My two favorite signs of spring are open windows & the boys being able to go outside without bundling up.
