QUESTIONS ON A SNOW DAY
This past Friday was an in-service day and yesterday, of course, was Martin Luther King Day, so the kids enjoyed a nice four-day weekend. And much to my horror the snow started last night and this morning the text came through that school was cancelled and now it's a five-day weekend. And there's this thing called a polar vortex heading our way... Not that I'm bitter.
I do, however, have a few questions:
2. Why do my dogs choose the coldest, iciest, snowiest days to follow me around the house, expectantly staring at their leashes on the hook every time I wander into the kitchen?
4. Why does my son, who is capable of making crepes from scratch, spend every snow day requesting food from me as if I were a short order cook? And why does his hearing, which never misses a word when watching Supernatural, suddenly fail him when I holler, "Make yourself a sandwich!"
5. And last, but certainly not least, why the hell do the snow days have to come at the end of an already long break?!?
This picture a friend sent me this morning sums up the sentiments of every mother I know:
