Status at the motherof4 Household

Me:  Was called “red-headed sunshine” in an email.  Slept in until 8:45 am (did awaken at 5:35 initially, got dressed, went down stairs, was informed seminary/school was cancelled, went back upstairs, took off clothes, went back to bed).  Status:  Confused – was called “red-headed sunshine” , but all children are home, Will is hooting, was planning on writing presentation on teaching and including children with special needs in church for training.  Must make breakfast.

Husband: is somewhere in either Detroit or Toronto, hoping to get a flight back to Boston before tomorrow because tonight he is scheduled to take scoutlings on a campout/freezeout.  Status: Unknown – and that’s the literal truth.

Brianne:  SNOWDAY, still in bed, midterm delayed, no school, can chat with collected boy on phone … Status: naturally happy.  Have not informed her that she is shoveling the driveway.

Jacob:  SNOWDAY, slept in, no school, currently planning full day of watching TV, playing video games, etc., looking forward to camping in the snow with other 13 year-old boys.  Status:  Ecstatic.  Have not informed him that he is shoveling the driveway.

William:  Snowday (aka at home), hooting in living room while typing on iPad, not wearing pants, no therapy today.  Status:  Unknown, but he sounds happy.

Lizzy:  SNOWDAY, slept in, watching TV, planning a day filled with TV, playing with Calypso, snacking.  Status:  Happy.  Have not informed her that she is shoveling the driveway.

it won't help if I tell you I feel your pain, will it?

we've already informed my 8 yr old that if his attitude doesn't change, he's shoveling the backyard. three snow days in one week is just my limit.

good luck today.

You need to post a status after you've informed them of their shoveling duties.

I agree with Big Daddy. Marcy
