Prescription: A dose of silly
Sometimes all you need is a little bit of silly to get through the day.
A little bit of silly will erase some of the eyerolls and the heavy sighs that accumulate during the winter confinement.
A dose of silly (and a pre-warmed car, stretchy mittens and a fleecy hat) will protect you from the -8 degree day when your spineless mom lets you leave the house wearing only those things, your too-small winter coat, shoes and tights. (Yes, I let her leave without her pants on).
A little more silly can make bathtime not so so much of a chore, bedtime not as excruciating and wake up time the best time in the world. Every day is something different: You never know how many penguins will be taking turns sliding down the neighbor's roof; or how many puppets the purple puppet eater will want to eat for breakfast or when Ernie and Bert will surprise you with a snowball fight as you head out to start the day.
Silly keeps it interesting.
