Look at that beautiful SUV. "Bessie" got my children and I home yesterday safely, through the snowstorm and about 12 inches of snow.
Tomato, tomahto, what matters is we made it home. And the boys liked being carried through the tundra into the garage.
It was a wee bit crazy yesterday. I was at work for about 4 1/2 hours, long enough for me to complain so much about being there that when my boss said we could leave I felt a little guilt for bitching about it. Not for long... seconds (literally) later I was off, telling the childcare to "hold the naps please" as I went to rescue my two little boys from this crazy weather.
As we were driving home from school, Drew asked, "are you driving on grass Mommy?"
"No, Drew that is the snow on the road, not grass."
"Oh you are driving on grass and snow," he replied.
"Um... sure." Sometimes it's just easier to accept his reality.
