OPM declared the government closed on Tuesday, even though it hadn't really started to snow until later. MoBob went to work for one hour and stayed for several, so Baby Z and I ventured to CVS and by the time we returned the first soft snowflakes were starting to fall.
Our day was spent climbing
playing with things that were *not toys*, i.e. dirty socks
and general hilarity at Mommy's discomfiture.
I know myself well enough to realize that I would not be a good stay-at-home parent, but I also accept that if I were, I would have planned the day a lot better. Like arranged a playdate or some sort of excursion. Originally MB and I were to take turns working and looking after Baby Z. But that didn't happen, and Baby Z and I were left to our own devices. Luckily we both survived, and by the time MB arrived home, Baby Z was asleep and I was ready for my own nap.
