Snow novelty

November 7, 2013 - Jennifer Brookens
I had to laugh yesterday morning, after the first snowfall of the season. At 7:30 a.m., both my children were all bundled up in their boots, coats, hats and gloves, rearing to go outside. Never mind the fact they'd be outside in 20 minutes to wait for the bus. But they were insistent, so off they went. They shoveled the driveway for me, and I hadn't even asked them to! I almost had to pinch myself; was I dreaming?! But the winter whimsy quickly wore off, and they were inside peeling off wet gloves and boots, fighting for the big quilt on the couch to warm up. I looked at the clock, and the alarm for the kids to get out to the bus stop sounded.

There was less snow on the ground this morning, but the routine repeated. Ready to go out and build snow forts by 7:30, back in by 7:50. Time to get to the bus stop at 7:55. Have to admit I was surprised to see them still excited about snow, even though there was none to shovel. But I'm willing to bet I won't be able to pay them enough to shovel the driveway for me once we hit the January/February skids.

Enjoy the novelty while it lasts, I guess!
