The Snow Days From Hell

Only a few weeks into 2014, East Coast moms have had a few too many snow days already. Isn't it funny how snow days change based on your kids’ ages?

My friends with children under 12 dread snow days and take them as personal affronts. 

Last Tuesday morning, with every school in Washington closed before a single snowflake fell, my phone and Facebook were burning up with messages from moms of young kids.  “Nooooooo!  Not another day off school! Calgon take me away!”

There was one mother who accused the school principal of personally targeting her sanity.

I know how they feel.

Snow days are evil, especially for a single working mom - or a happily married working mom whose husband sneaks out of the house before dawn on snow days.
