It's Sunday, there are 7 inches of snow on the ground, and it's 16 degrees. Why can't my kids just veg out in front of the Disney Channel all day like every other kid in America while I surf the web from my bed? Instead it's "Can you help me with my multiplication?" "Can we play the sight word bingo game?" "Can we bake a healthy snack together?"

I feel for you. We try to do our best for our kids, but some things are just beyond our control. I'm so sorry.

Send them down to my house. We'll straighten them out with some mandatory xbox360 time (the only thing my 9yo wants to do on a gorgeous, sunny, snowy day).

I think every now and again we deserve to slip into our neglectful parenting costume. It teaches our kids the valuable lesson of appreciation.
