Are your kids going stir crazy this winter?

My kids are going nuts lately! The older 2 (ages 11 and 10) are fighting all the time and my youngest (2) picks up on their cues and is going kind of nuts too! Snow days are my mortal enemy! How are you coping with snow days?

  • yes! but i think we all have cabin fever right now. my two kids are getting into everything. but we also deal with snow for almost 6 to 7 months out of the year. so everyday at least once a day but most times twice i bundle them up in their snowpants and boots and we all go outside to shovel snow and to play with our dogs. lol i think even the dogs get tired of the snow by the end of winter.

  • Thankfully no! We live in California so no snow in days! I came from MN so I know all about those!

  • Think positive. Spring will be here before we know it. I know, doesn't help any right now though does it?

  • My DS and I are both going nuts I think. I was actually talking to a GF of mine earlier and her and her 2 kids are going crazy as well. Winter is definitely the hardest time of the year for us here in WI. We can't take the kids outside to burn off energy and there's only so much to do with younger kids in the house. Like I told my GF...the blessed groundhog better not even THINK about seeing it's shadow this year!!!!!
