Before we moved here, someone told us that it doesn’t snow much in New York City.
First, there was the Boxing Day blizzard, which gave us 2 1/2 feet of snow.
We haven’t seen the sidewalk on the way to the train station in over a month.
I got to push the stroller like a sled through the unshoveled streets of Hoboken on the way to a doctor’s appointment yesterday in that horrible sharp snow that stings your face. Yesterday the news forecasted 4-7″ of sleet & freezing rain; instead we got a foot & a half of snow overnight. So the city shut down, which means my husband has a snow day! When The Munchkin wakes up from her nap, I think we’ll head out to play in the snow yet again.
But you can only play in the snow so long before you get too cold & The Munchkin starts chanting/whining for cocoa. So we’ve been spending a lot of time inside. Keeping The Munchkin occupied without resorting to the TV can require some creativity:
I’m open to new ideas. How do you keep your kids busy & yourself sane when you have to stay indoors?
