Clues that I am Home for the Night

After a treacherous errand run on the slick and freezing roads I vowed not to drive for the rest of the day.

My son came home from school, “Mom, Can I go to my friend’s house.”

My simple response was, “No.”

“But. why?”

“Did you not see the car that ran into the tree? Or the other car that fish tailed onto the curb?”

“That is why?”

“But. Mom!”

“No Buts. We are in for the night!”

It was by this time I realized that I failed to teach my children  the  visible signs that we are in for the night. So I made this special list  to save them from dashed hopes with the event they expect me to drive them somewhere in a middle of a snow storm.

So it is this random list of clues that would indicate to my children that we are not going anywhere for the rest of the night. If they are lucky we might  order pizza delivery!

What random  clues do you  display when you are in for the night?

  1. My daughter and I get in jammies and light candles all over the house. If we’re forced to go out, we stay in jammies, but we accessorize them with a belt or a scarf.

  2. Watching Netflix, Hello Kitty Pajamas, Restoration Hardware Throw (veryyyy soft!), Scraggly hair and most importantly, the COUCH (where I park myself for the duration of the day)! Love the post!

  3. They know I’m in for the night when I put on my pj’s, comfy slippers and robe… that’s it, point of no return. I can’t use the icy roads as an excuse though… we don’t get them. 🙂
