Watching my lovely son this morning I felt a surge of pride. There he was, ready for school, sat on the sofa watching TV. No dear readers, not the usual Nickelodeon / Disney channels but my dear smart son was watching Sky news! WOW my boy was learning about the world. Taking it all in. Listening to tales of woe, inspiration and disaster. As the weather came on he sat a little more upright. He was interested in a big way. He listened to the weather man, nothing was going to distract him. I smiled to myself and thought bless him, he will be a weather forecaster one day!
Then we had the following conversation..
D- "Mum, there sure was a lot of snow last night huh?"
Me - " Yes mate, but we had a lot on Monday and Tuesday and had 2 days off then didn't we?" (see I'm a fairly clever Mum and can occasionally read the inner workings of his little mind and the minute he asked i knew where we were headed).
D- "Yeah we did........So I guess we don't drive to Alton (10 miles north of our home with very little snow) via Plymouth (only 188 miles to the west with 8 or 9 inches of snow!) to get to school then?!"
The things they will do for another snow day!!!
