I would like to write a longer post today, but you’ll have to settle for a short note. I will be on a snowshoeing field trip with Queen Bee’s class today. For the record, today’s weather forecast calls for snow, rain, freezing rain and ice pellets. All day. It’s miserable out there. I was desperately hoping for a snow day today, but it was not to be. So in just a few minutes I’ll be putting on layers of warm clothing, packing a lunch, pulling on the big snow boots, and going out there to tramp around in the wet and the cold with a bunch of 7- to 9-year-olds.
But it’s totally going to be worth it because Queen Bee will be SO VERY GRATEFUL for this sacrifice on my part that she will be a little angel for at least the next three days, right? RIGHT? Oh, crap.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: parenthood is just one long series of doing crazy things for love. Happy Love Thursday, everyone. I hope your particular flavour of crazy at least lets you stay warm and dry today.
