Some days school is canceled. Why? Well Tuesday the roads were treacherous. 4+inches of snow fell and lots of accidents occurred. The prediction of more snow led to a snow day Wednesday.
How did we spend this windfall of time together? We were complete bums.
The three of us stayed in our jammies until well after noon. We read books, laughed, watched Extreme Home Makeover, giggled and were generally irresponsible with our time. We did manage to put away some folded laundry. I think it ended up in the correct drawers.
Eventually we ate lunch and practiced piano.
Are you making memories with your babies? I have the tendency to get so wrapped up in the things that have to get done - the homework, piano, laundry, and dinner. I forget to make memories and this snow day gave me the opportunity to really focus on doing just that.
Scripture tells us children are a blessing and a gift. I know that. I love my kids but I also find myself frustrated with their kid-ness. Why can they not do their own laundry especially if they are going to change clothes 3 times every day? What is purpose of the piano practice if you are going to get up 35 times in 30 minutes? I exaggerate. However there are days my brain overloads and I feel this way.
Then God gives me a snow day.
