Housebound and happy

by Jessie K on February 20, 2012

June and I have been housebound for the past day and a half.

The snow isn’t even that deep, but I don’t want to take chances on the road, not with precious cargo onboard.  Though the sun is shining, the roads look more or less clear.  We may try to brave it in a while.

I don’t particularly mind being stuck at home with my little girl.

I’ve been trying to teach June Hide and Seek; she hasn’t quite grasped the concept of finding mommy yet.

I’ve also been trying to get some work done, a grand delusion.  Everytime she sees me on my computer, she wants to practice type-type-typing too.

Still, snow days at home with a toddler are rare — the snow melts before you know it and the toddler grows up.

Completely jealous of the snow. Out here in Wisconsin, we’ve barely had any this season. My new skis haven’t even touched snow yet! I used to telecommute when my daughter was younger. I solved the typing troubles by giving her her own computer keyboard. She would set up her “office” on the windowsill and happily clack away while I worked. I did have to supply her with a cup of tea, notebook, pens, and a stack of paperwork, though.

I, too, love the still and quiet moments of a light snowfall. Here in NJ, we haven’t gotten any snow this winter (of course discounting the huge snowstorm we got this autumn which knocked out our power for 6 days!) Inasmuch as I’m happy to not have to drive in the snow, or miss work due to cancelled school, I’m very sad about these crazy weather patterns and global warming.
