You know how when you are pregnant with your first, you have all these ideas of what you will do and, more [self] importantly, what you won’t do once you become a mother? Something similar happens with me at the beginning of each school year. I plan to limit screen time, do extracurricular activities to enhance learning, yada yada yada. I even pin things on Pinterest that we can do on snow days. We’ll make snow ice cream, snow paint and even beautiful snow bubbles. Won’t that be lovely?
And then come the freakin’ snow days. I wonder if we hadn’t had a two-week winter break immediately preceding the
unnecessary snow days if I would be so disgruntled. Who knows? What I do know is I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE. I’ve got stuff to do. You know, like that little thing I like to call WORK. I can’t be making snow ice cream for the fourth time this month -- ain’t nobody got time for that.
I really don’t want to subject my kids to endless of hours of Good Luck Charlie and, heaven help me, Jessie, but what’s a mom to do? Trust me, I’ve tried the whole “When I was a kid, I played outside from morning till the street lights came on at night.” After a few hours they hit me with the lame “But mom, we’re freezing. We can’t feel our fingers or toes and have icicles hanging from our noses.” Whatever. Kids these days…
