This very cold weather reminds of how winters were when I was a kid. It didn't matter how cold it was because my brother, my friends and I would play outside until my mother saw our lips turning blue.

Before going out my mother would slather vaseline on our cheeks to make sure we wouldn't get chapped. She would always make sure we weren't freezing to death by sticking her hand down are backs to see if we were warm enough. After a day of playing in the snow and cold, we would return to a hot basin for our feet to soak in to make sure we didn't get frost bite.

Sometimes, I miss being a kid.
