Since this is Oscar’s first winter, I have been eagerly anticipating his very first snow. We have had plenty of rain this winter and even an ice storm, but I’ve been impatiently waiting for some fluffy, pretty snow. I knew Oscar wouldn’t love snow since it’s cold and wet, but I was so excited for him to see snow and experience it for the first time. A few days ago, we finally had some light snow falling, so I quickly put Oscar’s coat on him and we headed outside.
I was hoping that Oscar would at least be curious about the snow, but he just wanted to go back inside. Between Oscar’s hatred for anything cold and anything resembling water, it didn’t take him very long to decide that he didn’t like snow. I grabbed some Cheerios on the way outside so that I could get a few pictures of his first snow, but he turned and ran back inside as soon as the Cheerios were gone.
The funniest part about Oscar’s short time in the snow is that he kept trying to dodge the snow flakes. He hated the snow falling on his face and, even worse, the flakes occasionally landed near his eyes. When they did, he ducked his head each time in an attempt to avoid the snow, as if the flakes were slowly attacking him. In the end, he wasn’t really sure what the snow was or what it was trying to do, but he knew he didn’t like it.
I was secretly hoping Oscar would like playing in the snow or would at least be curious about it, but he really hated it. Even so, I finally got the chance to see him experience his very first snow, and it was fun watching him dodge the snow flakes. He might not like snow, but he sure looked cute with his coat on while the snow flakes fell around him!
