The Freeze

Axel, 2013

My Facebook feed and the local news are full of words like "Arctic", "sub-zero"," and "brutal," just to name a few.

And yes, it's pretty nasty out. I have been wearing Will's dad's giant shearling coat from the '70s, which is essentially like draping a live sheep over your body like Bear Grylls might do on Man v. Wild. There are giant steam clouds coming up from the subways and everyone is making lots of awkward small talk about the weather. "It's cold out there, huh?"

Axel has been cozy and inside, so doesn't seem to get what all the fuss is about. His high chair arrived this week and so our mornings go something like this: stockpile toys on the tray, throw them one by one on the floor so mama can pick them up again, repeat. And repeat.
