The Siren Song
"Please mommy, can we please play in the snow pile for a while? Please..."
Snow piles call to my children from every parking lot. There is something wildly fun about climbing up and down a snow pile if you are under the age of 11. I was explaining to my older kids that children love the snow whereas adults are less enamored with it. They did not understand. Snow is wonderful. How could adults not like it? I must be mistaken.
I try to indulge them when I can...because as an adult I am hoping for an early spring, which would mean the snow piles will be gone very soon.
