the tag in front isn't pokey

School calendar:

Monday - Backwards Day (wear something backwards!)
Tuesday - Pajama Day
Wednesday - Twins Day (dress like your friends!)
Thursday - Red and White Day
Friday - Cool Shades and Crazy Hat Day (also Canada's Flag Day) (also s*k*a*t*i*n*g)

He's been looking forward to this for a few weeks now. Planning his outfits, talking about how he's looking forward to each and every day, how he can't wait for Valentines.

I was preparing for a major sulk when I went in his room this morning to tell him school had been canceled, (wheeee it's a dreaded snow day agaaaaaainnnnn) mentally thinking over what I had in the house for crafts and games and maybe cookies? but he trumped me again.

"Okay." He said, jumping out of bed to wiggle his tootsies in his rug. "Can I still (thill) wear my clothes the wrong way?"

Oh definitely. Whatever keeps your little gap-toothed grin a-going.

How many snow days is this, anyway?
And 15 cm tomorrow, she says, pulling out her hair...

We're lucky that fun clothes can start our days off well too.

I *think* it's six.
Mostly on Mondays, so that there's an extra day of familial goodness....

Was that grumpy? Maybe I need to turn my shirt around, too!

How many snow days do they build into your year?

I think if we get many more, graduation is going to end up in July!
