Chicken & Noodles, Cold Weather, and Kids
With the snowstorm in progress (8-10″+!!!!!) I decided that the day called for chicken and noodles, mashed potatoes and homemade bread 🙂
It is one of the best go-to meals on a cold, snowy day! What is your favorite go-to meal on cold, snowy days?
Ok, so the rest of this blog post is probably going to step on toes, and I apologize. No, never mind, I don’t apologize, because, well, you will understand when you read it….
This is in regards to a certain situation I witnessed. A mother called her hair dresser to get her 3 year old son in for a haircut on Saturday. Picture this: the wind blowing very hard, near zero temps, with below zero wind chills. Why on earth would you willingly take a 3 year old out in that weather just to get a haircut??? A 3 year old does not NEED to go out in that weather just to get a hair cut! They don’t have that much hair to warrant getting them sick just to get a trim! And even if they did have enough hair to warrant a trim, is it really worth the health risk to your child to take them out in that weather just for a trim that could wait another week?
My boys are 11 and 13, and we won’t allow them to go out playing in that weather! I mean, come on, what are you thinking? I understand that there are situations such as weddings, etc, that might prompt the parents to want to get the hair all trimmed up, but again, the child was 3. Sometimes I really worry about the intelligence of some parents 🙁
Thoughts? It’s ok to debate, just to let you know. As long as we are all adults about it, I think it would make the discussion much more interesting 🙂
