Kara gave the kids a three month gift subscription to Kiwi Crate for Christmas. It was a life saver!
Snow days are never convenient for adults.There is always a deadline looming, a meeting thrown for a loop. This week was no exception for us.
There isn't much you can do but be in the moment - be a kid for a day and let go of the world and its deadlines. Years from now I wont remember the grants I needed to read, or the grad school applications I'd yet to rank. I will remember the hot chocolate and popcorn, playing Princess and Transformers simultaneously, and reading books out loud while the snow fell for days. I will remember how they each changed clothes 10 times a day, and the look on their faces when they ate snow ice cream for the first time.
I imagine when I'm sitting alone in my quiet office at my desk tomorrow (please!), I will miss the noise, the chaos, the eternal questions, and the sound of their laughter. Until the next snowmageddon.
