|Handsome and Luna watching a cat video|
I don't know about others but I love snow days. Thankfully I am very fortunate to work in a place where my boss understands I am a mom first. My kids are my utmost priority so when they are home, I am home and being with them is my favorite place to be.
This morning my husband headed in to work sooooo early. The alarm went off at 1:45 am. He shut it and I stayed awake so that I could wake him no later than 2:05 but then couldn't go back to sleep. He left at 3:45 and I tried for over an hour to sleep. It was definitely going to be a snow day so I shut the kids doors so the phone wouldn't wake them and waited.
They were both up before 8:30 and excited! After breakfast we watched a movie, spent time with the cat, headed outside to shovel so my husband could get in, played a game or two, baked cookies and just enjoyed being around each other. My days of them wanting to be with me are coming to a close as they are getting older. Their friends will eventually take much of their down time but until then, I will make the most of our days together and even when they are driving me crazy, remind myself that I will miss these fights, arguments and loud voices in the too soon coming years.
Note to my readers: Enjoy your kids! They are kids for only a short time and you will never get this time with them back!
