i constantly hear tons of parents who seem like they don't like kids having snow days because it means their kids would actually be home and *gasp* they'd have to spend time with their kids, er, at least have their kids around... i don't get it? I'm at home all day 24/7/365 with 2 of my kids - would be 3 had the oldest not started kindergarten this year. if there's anything i don't like about snow days it's that i feel like she's missing out on a day of good education, not because i don't want her around....
Edit* I understand that some moms work and of course snow days would be hard on them having to find childcare. I thought that would be pretty obvious but apparently judging by the snarky remarks - it's not. What I'm talking about are the moms who are home all day, and have nothing better to do, but still get so aggravated about it.
Also, never in this post above did I write anything related to "look at me! I'm the bomb biggity! please give me a f*ing trophy!" so all those comments can get over themselves. I wrote what I did to show that I, personally, am always with my kids, so if anyone would be annoyed at being around kids all the time, you think it'd be me, but I'm not, so I therefore do not get why some people find it hard to spend an extra 6 hours a day with their own children.
It is just a question. to everyone who had the decency to answer kindly, without all the defensive backlash, thankyou. that is all.
