As the head of the household, it’s my responsibility to make sure every member of my family stays safe—especially this coming winter season. It’s not usually a celebratory time for me because I always end up doing the grunt work such as air-proofing the house, repairing the windows, shoveling snow off the driveway, etc.
This year will be different, however. My son is old enough to be taught how to do simple things such as sticking on high temp adhesive across the basement and attic windows to prevent it from breaking in case of a windstorm. It’s amusing watching him act like a tough grown up when in fact; he’s only nine years old! I do hope everything goes well this season.
