The wonder and excitement when children wake up and the day is just that little bit different than it normally is … SNOW!
We look out the window and see snow and think that it’s pretty, but kids want to rug up and get out in it. That’s the first thing they think, the first thing they want to do even when it is still dark. You will never get your kids dressed and organised so quickly in the morning than if it snows.
It was fun to watch them building up wee piles, and being so excited, so I too decided to rug up and go out in the snow.
I wasn’t up for a snowman, or a snowball fight, there wasn’t quite enough for that, but I was keen for a run in the snow. It would have been so easy to just stay in bed, or to rug up by the fireplace, and stay inside, but I got up and got dressed, and went out. The kids thought I looked funny all rugged up, and they also thought I was crazy to be going running … but sometimes it’s really important to look funny and do crazy things in front of our kids.
What childlike craziness are you going to join in on this week?
