That’s right. Didn’t you hear? It snowed last week in South Texas. Or at least it did at my house.
Who needs real snow and 30 degree weather, when you have mom’s shredder and 70 degree weather?
Another one of those parenting moments where I have two choices. A) yell and get mad because he has dumped 5 pounds of shredded paper all over the floor and Dyson or not, that stuff is a PITA to clean up or B) get down on the floor and play in the ‘snow’ with them.
I chose option B.
When you look at those faces, how could I not.
We had 45 minutes of picture taking, throwing snow and general hilarity. That 45 minutes has given us a precious moment that’s worth more than words to me, and a wonderful fun mom memory for my kids.
Thank you God for the grace and the ability to look beyond my initial response of frustration and see the opportunity ahead of me.
