It was one of those Saturday mornings where you’re exhausted because you stayed up WAY too late the night before… And your little boy runs in at the crack of dawn and says, “Mommy, Daddy, it’s winter, look… there is snow outside! Let’s go play!” And you think to yourself, “why me?!” Well, I had one of those mornings recently. My hubby, being the amazing man that he is, immediately says,”yeah, let’s go!” And I’m thinking, oh good…you guys go, that means I get to go back to sleep! So they get ready and I am laying there thinking I should probably join them in the fun. Debating… sleep… no sleep… sleep… no sleep…? And then my lovely conscience pokes in, “go play, you’ll be glad you did.” So, I drag myself out of my zombie state and throw my snow clothes on and head outside to join them. It is a bright, sunny, winter wonderland outside. We make a snowman, have a little snow ball fight, make snow angels, and laugh a lot. Yes, I was exhausted the whole rest of the day, and I didn’t get that extra hour of sleep, but I have the memories of a perfect snow day, and my conscience was right, I’m glad I did. Take the time to play, do the things that will make memories, you’ll be glad you did too.
