Is it a sign that I’m getting old that I’m not as excited about the prospect of snow as I used to be?
I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that we don’t get a whole lot of snow in Virginia. We can go entire winters without ever pulling out boots and snow pants. Last winter was one of those. So when we actually get a decent amount of snow, finding everyone size appropriate winter gear can be a seriously challenging exercise.
But seeing the complete joy and excitement on my kids’ faces makes me really like a good snow day.
And then I have to steal the sled and show them how it’s done.
Or, I get beaten in a sledding race by my 5 year old. But I was a good sport about it and still let him have hot chocolate when we got home.
