Joy of Children

Woke this morning to find a dusting of snow on the ground. Kiddos woke, saw the snow, the squeals and jumping started. They then had to turn on the TV to see if they had school....even though I already told them I checked and they had school. I drove the oldest to school, to then turn around and get my youngest home to make the bus. Because of the snow, my road was backed up for 15 miles. Luckily, I know the back roads, and ended up driving my youngest to school, to find that the buses were just leaving the middle schools to start the elementary school runs. He was so upset that he couldn't play in the snow....all 2 flakes of them. Yes, that little bit of snow caused major traffic problems. It is great seeing the kids excitement over the little things in life. Snow, getting popcorn for a Christmas present, having a cookie for dessert, getting a kiss from mom. I am so lucky to have such great kids that don't whine if they don't get every new fade out there, but cherish what they do have. Just this past week, my one daughter willing helped my sister clean the kitchen, just so she could spend time with her aunt before she her aunt headed back to Florida.

On another note, I had to get rid of the cat my dad gave the kids. Angel, named because the cat had a guardian ANGEL looking out for him, decided that he didn't like me and attacked me out of the blue. He backed me into a corner and clawed my legs up while I was taking wood in the house. He has never done anything like that before and it really scared me. I decided to take him to the local animal control agency, who will be watching him for a few weeks, and if they need to test him for rabies they will let me know. Hopefully, he just didn't like me bringing wood in the house.
