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

Tuesday, February 1st, 2011

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.
