What's a mommy got to do, to get a snow day around here?
It snowed all day yesterday and today it is an absolutely freezing 9 degrees. I was really pulling for a snow day today.
When I was a kid, it was not unusual for us to get 2 or 3 days off in a row, because of snow. Of course, I lived in Massachusetts then...but still.
I LOVE snow days! I love bundling the kids up and taking them outside to build snowmen, shovel the neighbors driveways and have snowball fights. On a really good snow day, we even go up to Grandma's and spend hours riding sleds behind the 4-wheelers.
There's nothing like little kids coming in from hours of playing in snow. Their cold, red, little noses. Their chattering teeth. Their excitement over hot chocolate and warm cookies. Their snowmen that last, long after the day is done.
Those are the types of days that kids remember for a lifetime.
