Bad Mommy... Bad.

I have a confession to make.

I'm becoming a bad Mommy.

I'm sure you've heard about that nasty winter storm that is ravaging the East. Yeah, it's in Florida and for the past week we've had freezing temperatures. I'm a Native and I live in Florida for the main reason that it's called THE SUNSHINE STATE. So when cold weather strikes, it leaves me shivering and hiding inside in front of my space heater with fur boats on and a funny hat on my head.

Unfortunately, my poor child is suffering because of my inability to deal with the cold. We've been inside most days for the past week and while I have been keeping up with the arts and crafts and the learnings of our colors, sometimes... like right now... I slack and become bad Mommy.

I sit in front of the computer working (um, twittering) while she watches cartoons.

Just thinking about bundling up and going outside makes my nose hurt (seriously!).

And if you do go outside, there's the wind. Oh, the wind! It's wicked, nothing that Florida is used to. I mean, we had SNOW the other day. SNOW! In Florida!

Thankfully we have warmer weather rolling in this weekend and I can break out the flip flops again (even if only for a day or two) and maybe I'll get back to normal... but damnit, this cold weather is making me super bad.

Please tell me I'm not alone.

Oh honey, there is nothing wrong with a little cartoon watching! or even a lot of cartoon watching! I agree, I am OVER the cold! My feet haven't been this covered in years.
