When IÂ (Molly) looked at the weather forecast today I got really excited. Why? Because we are expected to have a “big snow”.Â Since the snow is supposed to come more on the weekend I won’t have to get out to go to work which is a big plus! Immediately my mind started making plans of what to do in all this glorious snow that’s coming, when I was a child my brothers and I would eagerly anticipate the coming of a big snow so we could go inner-tubing. Normally we would host competitions with each other to see who could go the farthest, the fastest, etc…
I think I’m going to do that this weekend with my nieces it’s time to pass on the tradition and teach them how to ride an inner-tube all the way down the hill with one hand in the air. It’s time to teach them how to dress warm enough so you can stay outside all day until mom practically forces you to come in to eat lunch. It’s time to show them the art of building a snow fort you can crawl through, and live in if you want to (well, only if your mom let you, which mine never did). Finally, it’s time to teach them the way to make the “World’s Best Mug of Hot Chocolate” with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles to warm up when you just can’t take the cold anymore. Really, I think that this is a perfect time for me to forget my age, and act like I’m 6 years old again.
Ahhh, I can’t wait!
What are your plans for the big snow?
