I am participating in the March Slice of Life Challenge: A slice a day for all of March. You should do it too! Thank you, Two Writing Teachers! Readers, check out their site, and start slicing!
Snow Day Dreams
Maybe you will read your book,
and snuggle in to watch a movie.
There could be fun crafts!
Everyone will work together to clear the driveway.
No worries, you’ll be home so the house will stay clean,
the dishes will be done!
You will get caught up on your work.
The dog will be chill and
you will read some more by the fire.
Snow Day Reality
Have you ever tried to teach a 7 year old to swallow a pill?
Have you ever tried to crush prednisone into applesauce just like the doctor did at the hospital?
How many times does a kid need to throw up their medicine before you call the doctor?
Is the pharmacy open during this winter storm?
Is that rash related to the already known condition?
How much coffee is too much coffee?
Will anyone else play with the dog?
How many people will complain about the fireplace heat?
Is puffy paint a fun craft?
How much slime can 3 kids make?
How many slime batches can get messed up and thrown away?
Who will make dinner?
How much bickering can 3 kids do in one day?
When will you do your work?
Will you be able to read your book later?
Will tomorrow be a snow day?

I guess you are hoping that it will NOT be a snow day! Yes, the reality is rarely what our dreams are. Nice contrast!
Oh no! I am so sorry! This is definitely NOT how you want to spend a snow day…
Loved the comparison you wrote along with the photo. Could completely feel how your day went through the use of your questions. Yikes! Dream away 🙂
Snow day is the day to slow down life but when you have a child who is ill the reality is different than the dream. Time never stands still.
I love your post! I wrote about my snow day too – how fun to see how we all process similar things via our slices.
Oh my gosh, this is so real and I just lthe juxtaposition between the two. Love this!
