While I find it very disheartening that we've had barely any snow to cover up the massive amount of dog poop-age out in the back yard, I'm kind of thankful...
...because putting on Chunky's boots are a bitch.
There are a lot of difficult things that other parents have warned me about like how it's difficult to get your child to eat vegetables, or how it's difficult to brush their teeth, or how it's difficult to get them to take nap.
But no one, NO ONE warned me about how difficult it is to put friggen boots on a kid.
It's like putting boots on a limp noodle.
Then once their foot passes to the ankle part of their boot, they curl their toes and stiffen their feet.
What the hell?
I've learned a few things about putting on boots, and because I am not like those "other" parents who didn't warn me about boots, I'm going to share my helpful tips with you.
#1. Show the boot who's the boss.
It's on like Donkey Kong Bitch
#2. Beg child to help you put the boot on.
Every time you resist the boot, a cute fluffy bunny is killed.
#3. Lay the child down on the floor. Proceed to shove the boot on. Remember: Kids are resilient so put your weight into it.
I don't care if this hurts...this boot is going on dammit
