Maybe I can find a starbucks on my way back and get some crack?


I had a "deep thought" moment with four kids yesterday. My two kids (7 and 4) and two little visitors (kinda cute actually, Colin, George's friend and his wee little sister - over to play with Ed, who kinda ignored her a lot). We all ended up outside in several layers of waterproof clothing and had a big monster snowball fight.
They kept nailing me in the freak'en head (little buggers)... of course, I was using a snow shovel to throw loads of snow at them... ar ar ar...
Any ways... the deep thought thing... at one point I called it "OVER" and sat down in the snow with them and explained that "most snowball fights end about 3 seconds after somebody gets hurt... and look at us... we've had this great long battle... loads of fun... and nobodies been hurt.... YET. So, let's stop now while everyones happy."

This took a few minutes to sink in with them and we did end it. The deeper message was lost on them but not so much on me. I sat in the snow for a few mintues after that and thought about that message and how valuable it could be in my life. Learning to stop on a good note is not so easy in life. But I'm all for working on it. :D
