How to Make a Rainy Day Feel Full of Sunshine

Yesterday, the three of us (me and the kids) got stuck in a very sudden downpour without the stroller cover. Hallie and I got soaked (Lea was relatively more protected in the bottom seat of the Phil & Teds stroller) and by the time we got home from our 8 block walk, were quite bedraggled. I pulled Hal's wet clothes off of her and grabbed a towel and rubbed her down and dried off her hair. Then she grabbed the towel and said, "I dry you off now Mama!" How totally sweet. It made getting caught in the rain totally worthwhile (well, sort of).

Too bad there are no visuals to accompany this, but let me just say that Hallie and I were quite a sight to see!

Oh that would make it worthwhile, how very sweet!

It's those days that seem, on the surface, to be the hardest that kids can turn into one of the best days of your life :-) Love your blog!
