Your kids are probably up and raring to go on this beautiful New Year’s Day. Ours have been up almost two hours, since 6:45am. Thanks kids, you slept in today! It’s -2 degrees in the mountains where we are spending time with our friends and their kids, but who wouldn’t want to bundle up and make a snowman before 8:30am on January 1? It took no less than 30 minutes to get everyone properly protected from the freezing cold, including but not limited to snow pants, winter jackets, ski socks, hats, boots and gloves duct taped on for the highest efficiency…Necessity is the Not So Zen Mother of all Invention! 30 seconds after walking out into the snow and cold, one of the kids ran back inside and screamed, “I think I trusted a fart.” Curses, foiled again!
It will take you 30 minutes to get your kid ready for the cold and snow and 30 seconds for them to poop in their pants!
