When I woke up this morning to several inches of snow, I decided not to chance the 40-mile commute to work. I already knew last night that school was cancelled. So I decided that Bersain and I would have a fun-filled snow day, something working mothers rarely get to do (especially in the southeastern U.S.).
Then I realized that, since I took a few days’ worth of afternoon Adderall doses to school last week and school is closed today and probably will be again tomorrow, Bersain is low on medication. I gave him half of his regular morning dosage and hoped for the best.
I figured if we stayed busy shoveling snow (which his stepdad put on his to-do list before heading to work), building a snowman and making snow cream, he might burn off some energy naturally.
Well, we shoveled, made snow cream and attempted a snowman. The snow cream was delicious. However, the snowman was a flop. It looked more like a snow volcano or maybe a ski mountain.
Now I’m exhausted, but he’s still going strong. I’m definitely ready to go back to work tomorrow!
