It’s freakin’ cold … now what?

If you live in the NORTH and you have kids you have a few options. Get ready to go to 47 movies, bounce places and pottery classes OR GET THE HELL OUTSIDE.  No, it is not easy hearding the wild animals known as YOUR kids.  But, in the end, it’s totally worth it.

Skiing, tubing and snowboarding are the best options.  No, they do not have to be expensive.  See those wild ladies up there ??  In Pennsylvania they can all ski and snowboard for FREE. They can take lessons and rent stuff for free too.  All 4th and 5th graders are part of the plan.  There are plenty of coupons, deals and discounts to get you and the wild animals out of the house this winter.

There’s more … if you can trick some of your Mom friends into joining you the whole deal gets even more fun !!

Now, you will have to try the stuff yourself if you want the kiddos to be successful. I myself was not a huge fan of tubing. But, these dummies ( above) would not take no for an answer.  Candidly, I am glad they forced me into it…

There will be days when it is freezing. There will be days when your kids are crying because you packed the green socks and they wanted the blue ones. But, they would be complaining about something else even if they were sitting on your couch or bouncing away in a high priced bounce house.

I do hate a freezing cold, cloudy, yucky weekend.  But, I also hate people who complain and do nothing about it.  PICK A LANE PEOPLE – WHO ARE YOU ?

And remember… your friends love you.  Even if they suggest tubing or some other ridiculous activity when it’s 10 degrees outside.

TRY SOMETHING NEW ! GET OUTSIDE ! SHOW THE KIDS HOW FUN YOU CAN BE!
