We had the pleasure of experiencing our first official “snow days” yesterday and today. While it would have been my first inclination to continue my laundry, cleaning and paperwork, I decided to spend the days really engaging the boys. I have to admit I don’t always do that. Since they are so close in age, they play well together - when they aren’t fighting, ha! – allowing me to let them play independently.
We, of course, played outside in the snow, made forts with furniture and blankets, played army men, board games, and my personal favorite…acted out action scenes from a Spiderman cartoon. They amazed me how creative they have become. I would not have noticed this had I gone along with my chores.
Did I get a little behind? Yes.
Does it matter? No.
Did I always feel that way? Sadly, no.
I am determined to not miss out on this precious time any longer.
Today, I’m thankful for snow days. Do you have any snow day traditions?
