Whatever, right??? It's that stupid title thing. Again. My teacher friend comes up with snazzy ones, but me??? Well. Just look at the title and there you go.
What a week it's been! I love some snow days! Especially when it's actually snow, and not just ice. My kids got the all important phone call Sunday night telling us that, yes indeed-y, school was out. :))) Don't you remember that feeling as a kid?! Getting that little piece of info was magical. I try to replicate that for my kids every time it happens. I loved that feeling, and hope that my kids look back on these years and remember them with the same fondness I do.
And then we got a 2nd snow day. On the first one, Todd was home with us. We all slept late, had a yummy chocolate chip pancake breakfast with hot chocolate, and the kids played outside all morning. After lunch we took them sledding. It was so much fun!! There's a huge hill that half of The Ville showed up to have fun in the snow, and we were among the many.
On Tuesday we woke up late again :), had breakfast and went to lunch and a movie with Daddy. We ate at Chik Fil A, and saw Yogi Bear in 3D. It was a cute movie...and Jonah was still (and QUIET) the entire time. That, my friends, is a huge deal. The kid cannot sit through a movie to save his life. But he did this one! I didn't hear him say one thing, although at one point, he did look at me and give me a thumbs up.
So, now it's back to the real world. School, work...all the usual stuff. Homework...you name it. I treasure all the little moments I get in life with my kids. It seems like I wish my life away sometimes. I really try to remember not to do that, though. It's easy to get all caught up in things that are not important. Sometimes I will look at one of my kids and remind myself to just slow down and to enjoy them. I know they're only young once, and I want them to have great memories of these years.
Well...speaking of that, I am going to enjoy a movie with them now. And enjoy being snuggly in my fleece pj's and robe. Because the heater is not working downstairs and it is FUH-REEZING in here. Last time I looked at the thermostat, the temp was a chilly 60 degrees up in here. :) Well...good night and love to all!
