I went sledding with Sofi yesterday. I don’t think I’ve been sledding in over a decade. Sofi is a cool kid and I like hanging out with her and we have nice mid-day walks almost every weekday, but I have to say – it is 10000x easier to go sledding with a kid who is not your kid. There was no whining, no complaining about snow in boots or that the sled was too heavy to carry. It was pure fun from start to finish. We walked to the park, tied Max to a trash can, and went down the hill a few times together and many times just Sofi. I did go down this mini-mogul with her, which was fun when we were sailing through the air, but the landing was a little harder than I think I should ask my spine to withstand a second time.
