Today is our first official “Snow Day” of the year. I met it with a gammet of emotions. Thoughts of little bundled up bodies trudging through snow drifts, snow balls and attempts at snowmen, collide with the images of runny noses, muddy snow prints on carpeting, piles of wet mittens, hats, coats and boots strewn across the entryway.
I thought back to my snow days as a child and appreciated my Mom all the more. I never remember her being in a bad mood or miffed at all the snowy clothing and us kids traipsing in and out and back in and out. I just remember the good. Good job Mom.
So today I tried my best to see that the kids would look back on this day with fun, fond memories and not Mom being in a bad mood. I made hot chocolate and greeted the red fingers and Jaden’s tear-filled eyes with a smile.
All that truly makes me sound like such a shallow Mom, doesn’t it? Oh well, I think I am just tired of all the messes around here. They are almost done . . .the carpet comes tomorrow and the addition will be done!!!
Here are some adorable shots of my Snow Princess and the boys.
Evely liked the snow,
probably because she couldn’t feel the cold!
Remember how that tasted? I tasted it again and it hadn’t changed.
The boys stood for the longest time and
threw snow and yelled “It’s snowing!”.
Jaden, always cleaning up!
I’ll leave you with this snowman funny.
