Today we went snow tubing. In the -20 degree weather. Because nothing says I love you like frostbite.
The inside of my nostrils were freezing, and yet my nose would not stop running.
Here I am going down the hill. I screamed the whole way down. My boys thought it was the funniest thing ever.
And then I had to pull my daughter back up the hill and almost die in the process.
In the background, you can see my 12 yr old son who is too cool to wear a hat. Even though his ears might be turning black from frostbite and fall off, he will look cool dammit. On one hand it is so maddening and ridiculous, but on the other hand I remember how I refused to zip up my winter coat when I was that age. Apparantly being cold is a sign of coolness that persists to this day.
And then I tied the snow tube to my back bumper and drove home. I just didn’t want to hear anymore of their whining. They were well bundled.
I am kidding, in case it wasn’t obvious. But my daughter was very disappointed when she realized it was a joke.
