That said there are some drawbacks. For one thing, I often get an assignment or task that is so boring my brain tries to escape out of my ears. And as is often the case, the reward for finishing one of those assignments is getting assigned a new boring task.
This has been the most snowless January I can remember in quite a while. On the one hand I'm happy that I don't have to shovel a ton of snow or deal with bundling up the kids to take them to daycare.
On the other hand, I would like to have some snow to build a snowman or fort on the weekends for them to play with. I had visions of them jumping off the deck from the old pool access door into a big pile of snow.
Guess that will have to wait until next year, which might be better anyway as they'll be a year older and more susceptible to the idea that you don't jump off every high place, just the one Daddy approves.
