I have a confession to make...

Unlike my parents who would ocassionally
bring us to play in the snow, on their
way to hit the casinos in Lake Tahoe
I am a bad bad mom
My daughter Stephanie
is nearly 19 years old
and this picture of her and
my son, Matt is the closest
she has been to the snow.
see, she's nearly sitting in it...

As it is, Matt was about 9 the first
time he saw snow, on his parents
way to hit the casinos in Tahoe
(and at the time, I thought what
a bad bad mom I was.)

You know you're a rotten to the core Mom when
your almost 19 year old daughters New Years resolution
is to actually see and touch snow. I reminded her of the
snow at the shopping mall that she had seen and touched
she CLAIMS that it wasn't REAL snow, I beg to differ....!
I don't even have a great excuse since we live only a few hours
from the snow, if that! See that picture above with the cozy
looking cabin? I bet they have coffee & a fireplace
That is where you will find this rotten to the core mom,
while her poor snow deprived daughter is playing in the
snow with her friends.....I guess I mustn't be that bad,
I am letting her bring friends along after all! :)
P.S. I am just kidding about being a bad mom....:)
my daughter may beg to differ at times....haha..
(photos 1 & 2 - are mine. 3&4 from here)

Dont worry too much, I am almost 40 and have never seen snow falling. I must get there one day....

You're not a bad Mom! One great thing about this country is that we have so many different landscapes and weather patterns! It is just another thing for your daughter to look forward to.

That cabin is just quintessentially cozy isn't it? My kids are also desperate to see snow, but it's about six hours drive away...so it's not going to happen anytime soon. I love that photo of your daughter sitting in the "snow" by the way. Meredith xo.

I don't think that it will affect Stephanie's life too much, Cathi !! I'm sure that she is still a very well-adjusted , lovely person and will be fine !!!!
It's always good to have an experience to look forward too. It wouldn't do to hve done everything by the time you are 19 !! XXXX

Oh that was so funny!

Hey that cabin looks great, I'd love to be tucked up there with a drink in hand :)

Tracy said...

First of all, you're only half bad because you've never hit the casinos in Tahoe. Besides, Steff is 19 now, she can go see snow whenever she wants - but has she yet? See? You're absolved. :-)

Kathy said...

I would be sitting in that cabin with you, Cathi! Enjoy!

I dont know...nearing the end of a Vermont winter, I would tell her that snow is highly overrated! :)
thanks for stopping by, Cathi!

This makes me smile Cathi ~ I know you are not a bad Mom as you have a big heart. I hope you have a wonderful time at this winter wonderland!
