Best Job In The World

Sometimes being a stay-at-home mom is really really tough.

Those are the days where everybody is fighting, nobody is sleeping and you haven’t showered, talked to another adult or had a moment to yourself for as long as you can remember.

Then there are days when it snows just enough…

Just Enough Snow

And the temperature gets up above freezing so you spend a couple of hours building a snow fort

or two…

Gregor Behind Snowfort II

and teaching your four year old how to make a really big snowball…

…or a snowman.

Snowy!

And you end up with some impressive hat hair…

And the only people who laugh at you are laughing with you.

Best job in the world!

Hi-Tech Snow Day

My six year old and my almost-four year old are lying, one in the top bunk one int he bottom, sending messages to each other on two Nintendo DSs.

The eldest drew a head and sent it to his brother, who added a body and sent it back….

Remember when we used to do that with, er, paper?

I just heard this shout,

“Mum, can you come and read the messages I’m sending to G? He can’t read it when I send him long sentence. I don’t think he knows about the silent ‘e’!”

It's A Beautiful Day

The branches outside my office window are wearing a layer of fluffy white snow, three inches deep.

Through the branches I can see a small orange disk nudging its way upwards, spreading red light over our very white world.

And the radio is full of happy news about people having a huge party in Washington.
