We have had a plethora of snow days lately at Casa Ferrier.
At first, the unexpected break was terrific- but now, the snow has melted, school’s STILL out, and parents all over the city are running out of things to do.
Fortunately, I have a few ideas for you, based on what WE’RE doing today…
Lie on the (filthy) kitchen floor and eat Doritos.
Get out all your Halloween masks from years gone by and wear them until you get high on the fumes of your own carbon dioxide.
Break out the secret candy stash.
Crack open one of those dusty coffee table books and expose your kid to Fine Art.
Play Monopoly Jr. for the eleventy-hundredth time.
Accuse your kid of cheating when he charges you double rent and takes all your money.
Throw the board in the air and go cry in the bathroom.
Accept your son’s peace offering of Doritos.
Dress the dog in an embarrassing outfit. Photograph her outrage for posterity.
Practice your duckface.
Have a staring contest.
Take another candy break.
Have your kid write his teacher a letter telling him what a great time he’s having on his days off from school.
Convince your kid that scratching your back is SO MUCH FUN!
Eat more Doritos.
Annnnnd that’s all I’ve got.
Seriously, Metro Nashville Public Schools.
THAT’S ALL I’VE GOT.
