    For the first time in 10 years, NYC Public Schools have been closed because of snow. My son is going to be so happy... it's his first one!

    Me? Not so sure about this ... *sigh*

    So what do you do to occupy your kids on a snow day?

    My parents used to give me a shovel and tell me to "make myself useful".

    Give them chores. I'll bet there is a driveway that needs shoveling...

    Good idea! But no driveway!! Co-op apt!

    I could have him shovel the terrace, I guess. heh... He'd probably love that.

    I should go buy him a shovel. We've never had enough snow since he was born to warrant us having one. ;)

    When mine were little, if it were 'good snow,' they'd go out to play in it. Afterwards, hot chocolate and lunch. Then we'd bake, sometimes several things. Nothing like being in the kitchen with snow coming down!

    The streets are too treacherous to get the kids to school, but K-mart is open?

    That seems weird to me…

    is that true? lol.. I don't have a KMart here.. but I have a strauss store. There's a hardware store about a mile or so away, but getting there would be a nightmare. Somehow I figure my car is going to need to be shoveled out of the parking lot.

    Mine seemed to like to make what they liked to eat. Today they make many things better than me. Their idea of 'good date' is to cook dinner for their girl! :lol:
