DateNight Babysitting is proud to present you, Canadian Parent, with this certificate of recognition for your achievement of
Surviving the Canadian Winter
And for demonstrating excellence in the following winter parenting tasks:
Cabin Fever Management – of kids inside for the better part of the winter – particularly when it’s cold but there is NO SNOW. Because frostbite is actually a worse problem to have than crazy kids. Sorta.
Coping on Little Sleep – due to sleeping through constant coughs – ALL.NIGHT.LONG.
Redirection of Overstimulation due to Holidays – sleep deprivation and sugar overload are no joke – separately or in combination. But you gotta get the kids through the day!
Snowsuit Assembly Operations – from mitten search and rescue to boot removal to coat-wearing negotiations to indoor overheating pre-activity.
Kleenex Logistics Management – from budgeting to storing to restocking to transporting in your sleeve and at the bottom of your purse, it’s a talent all parents have. If only we could get them to learn to BLOW THEIR NOSE.
March Break Scheduling and Operations – In case winter isn’t long enough – the world likes to throw in extra long weekends and weeks off. Whether you stayed at home with your kids, had to arrange care for them or planned a trip – a change in routine is always extra mental work!
You’ve done the impossible. You have survived a Canadian winter. Spring is here. We hope!
