From L.A. to My Snowbound Fellow Moms, With Love

I’ve been thinking about all you parents out there in the areas of the U.S. that are being so hard-hit with snow, ice, school closings…

How are you doing? At first, I’m guessing, snow days are fun. And then… You run out of diapers. Or milk. You have to make it to the store with a toddler and a preschooler, all of you bundled up like crazy.

Then, on day two, the kids start fighting. What did moms do during blizzards before we all had Facebook, where everyone could complain a bit, share pics of the snow in front of their house, and let off a little steam?

Here in L.A., we’re feeling a bit guilty this week, I think. Grateful for the good weather (it finally stopped raining!). But concerned about friends and family buried in snow from Oklahoma to New York.

If you’re snowed in with kids at home, let us know how you’re doing. And if you have some tips for other parents in the same (frozen) boat, please share!

Stay safe, everybody.

    Don’t feel guilty! I’d rather have snow than an earthquake any day.

    Today (our fourth snow day in a month) is a pajama day for the kids. Dad is working from home, and Mom is just doing the usual juggling act with an extra ball in the mix. The trick is to not fall into the TV/computer trap - it’s waaaay too easy to just let ‘em watch a little while you get your stuff done, isn’t it?

    It’s too windy to go play in the waist-high snow at the moment, but we’ll be breaking out some of the craft kits and games we got for Christmas.

    Good point about the earthquakes, Tracy. And we never get advanced warning on those!

    Yep, it’s often tempting for many reasons to resort to TV/computer games. Bravo for going for the craft kits and games!
