Mother of the Year Award goes to Aunt Josefina of Oklahoma!!
Tuesday morning I knew it was going to be cold here in Oklahoma and possibly a sprinkling of snow overnight. I peeked outside first thing to assess the situation. I saw ice droplets on my windshield but no snow on the ground. "OK I thought, nothing to worry about. I'll just warm the car up longer, bundle Carly up and maybe drop her off at the front door. " Off we went, having no problems other than on the front porch which always has a small patch of ice in winter because it gets no direct sunlight. No biggie. On our journey to educationland we pass the two boys I have lovingly named Pocket Boy and Tall Guy. (Pocket Boy never wears a jacket or coat and walks with his hands stuffed in his jeans pockets...and Tall Guy, well that is self explanatory) PB and TG were walking toward home not school. "Hmmm I wonder what those boys are doing, did they forget something?....Haha or their is no school and we don't know....surely not. Wait...there is very little traffic today come to think of it.....OMG there is no one at the school! THERE IS NO SCHOOL TODAY! I am the worst mother! Why isn't there school today? There is no snow and only a little smidgen of ice! What weinies! Great now I am going to be late for work. What are the girls going to do all day? I wonder how loud Uncle Joe will cry when he realizes he has to stay home with the girls another day? I have gotta get a tv in my room to keep up with these things."
So I turned around and took Carly home to her Daddy and sister who were up enjoying a spot of breakfast. They had no clue either. Thank goodness they went to Nana and Papa's later to break up the monotony of being home all day on a Not So Snow Day.
The next day Cassidy called me as I was driving to work. She was upset because there was actually going to be school on Wednesday. She said, "But we PRAYED Mom! We prayed for no school and last year it worked!"
Oh, the joys of parenthood and winter weather in Oklahoma.
