I have made the executive decision to keep my children safely at home today. Yes, I realize there is only a dusting of snow on the ground. Yes, I realize there may not be more than a dusting of snow all day today. BUT....the forecast is calling for 2-6 inches or more for our area & I do not feel the need to go through the vast effort it takes to get the two oldest dressed & out the door only to have to pick them back up from school 2 hours later.
The snow is still falling. I do not want to spend my day worrying if they're about to put my pre-schooler on the bus to send home (#1 Son is terrified of riding the bus & absolutely cannot deal with it unless thoroughly prepped for the ride...he's convinced the driver doesn't know how to get to our house because she follows a different route than we do normally & he can't get the seat belt off so he thinks he'll be trapped on the bus).
So today will be spent vegging out, baking cookies (if I can get up the gumption to do it), playing, and fighting over who gets to talk to the baby.
