Snowed In

So here we are gearing up for our first really big "winter storm" of the season.  Last year by now I think we've had 2 major power outages and a zillion days off from school!

What does your family like to do when snowed in on a cold wintry day?

I would love to read a good book while sitting by a cozy fire... sipping hot chocolate and cuddled with a fuzzy blanket.

However, my day will probably look more like... 
  • wiping snooty noses, poopy bottoms, spilled messes...
  • pouring milk, preparing food for breakfast, cleaning up... then pouring milk and preparing food for lunch... cleaning up... then once again for dinner...
Highlights of the day may include some tickle fests and tackle wars...

Lows of the day... I'm sure someone is going to hurt someone's feelings or steal a toy away or mess up whatever creation someone else was making...

Successful day... if no broken arm or leg or head and no blood is spilled...

Memorable day... I hope so... everyone tells me they are only this little once and it goes by with the blink of an eye... so let's create some memorable moments!  Come on snow!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, folks!

Well... the holidays have come and gone and we are well into 2015...

"Busy" just barely describes my life right now... it is just... full... constant... barraged with unending demands...  both at work and at home... incessant...

My life overflows with warm cuddles... affectionate squeezes... and silly giggles...
and still there are the shrill screeches... the frustrated tears... the sad whimpering...

I cherish the triumphant smiles... the excited whispers... the tender hugs...
and yet deal with the angry scowls... the mischievous ploys... the obstinate insubmission..

My kids are seven, five, three, and one.  They are so little, so cute and yet so physically draining and taxing.  

I love it.  It may not seem like it every second, every moment, everyday... especially when my voice escalates and my face contorts... but I do... I love it.  I love holding their little hand... embracing their little body... kissing their squishy cheeks... I love being their mom.  I love them.

Happy New Year, everybody!  May 2015 bring new memories to be made... accomplishments to achieve... and just treasured times with loved ones...
