Dear Heat Wave

Dear Heat Wave,

Yes, I know its summer.... Its SUPPOSED to be hot, I get it. In fact, I'm quite the fan of summer in general, its just this run of days over 40 degrees Celsius is a bit much. Its not even the heat itself that is annoying me, because i have pretty awesome air-conditioning and its working like a champ. No, no its...its...Its too hot to be outdoors - unless you want to die of heatstroke - and this being cooped up in the house with cranky 3 yr old is killing me!

This is his cranky face. I don't like it.

We both have a bit of cabin fever, and DVDs and playing trucks is only fun for so long. My boy is an outdoorsy kid, but its too hot for tricycles, or scooters, or digging in the dirt - as crazy as it sounds, its even too hot for running under the sprinkler because the sun has too much bite, even with a hat and sunscreen!

So, if you could just, you know, please rack off that would be great. Even just dropping the temperature by 5 degrees would make so much difference. Its either that, or this mama may just crack and pray for winter!


  1. I am so hearing you, we are going insane here too.

  2. I am with ya on that! The older I get the less I like the warmer weather, and now that I have a toddler who likes to play at the park these hot days are really testing my toddler entertaining skills, which are lacking and limited to say the least!

  3. I've been watching the news about the heat and the fires you guys have over there at the moment. I'm assuming there are no fires near you? It's strange, we're all being warned about a huge drop in temperature (they're talking about minus 10 in some places) and to expect snow by Monday. I hate the cold but I hate the heat even more, hope it cools down for you soon.
