So mother nature has been really giving with snow this year. We haven’t had a “good” snow at all since Aspen has been around. I have to say, she is absolutely loving it! I was kind of dreading the in and out in and out that I thought sledding would bring, but seriously, there’s been none of that. She’s been outside using the sled for hours on end and when she’s been done, she’s done! We took G out into the snow and I can’t really say he was impressed as I had anticipated. Maybe it had to do with the fact he was packed tighter into that snow suit than a processed hotdog. I don’t know!
Am I the only one in Kentucky who has noticed all of our snow days have arrived on a Thursday, Friday, or Monday to start? This has made for some awesome long weekends. Dare I really say that.. when I have close friends scrambling t find trustworthy babysitters since their job’s don’t cancel for frost on the windshield!? Ehhhrmm.. Heck. I’ll still say it. Awesome!
The black bibs Aspen has been using for the snow were bought last year for $5 with the anticipation of a ski trip over holiday break (that didn’t happen due to ticket prices never being fair). But any who, they’ve turned out to be a fabulous $5 spend!
Hopefully the snow will soon clear up and everyone will be back to their normal routines. When I read facebook stat’s about how annoyed so many parents are by having their kids home, I really get it – they might have poorly worded their frustrations – But I get it. Everyone’s out of the routine, the kids are stuck in, they miss their friends, they’re going off the wall, some parents are missing work, struggling to find sitters if they aren’t missing work and after about 4 days everyone is just ready to get back to the usual grind… Hang in there, Moms!!!
