Random Kid Moments

A couple of weeks ago I was getting the kids ready for the day...the boy off to school, and then the girls (daughter and I) got to spend the rest of the day together. My girl loves those days. Mostly because she gets to use the kid computer all by herself and watch whatever her little heart desires. I do make her get away from it and do other things, though.

But this particular morning she was excited to spend the day at home with me. She went to go brush her teeth at the other end of the house and I heard her exclaim with excitement, "The sun is awake!" I guess if she has to be awake the sun might as well join her. 

When we dropped the boy off at school and he climbed out of the car she said, "He's a good boy." I had a flashback to something akin to the tv show Dennis the Menace when she said that, like she had something to do with raising him. He is a pretty good kid. So is she.

Yesterday we got some much needed rain, and the temperatures cooled off a little. I would like to enjoy a little more spring time before summer scoots its way in if you don't mind Mother Nature. Please and thank you. 

The kids were inquiring about playing in the rain. But we had had some thunder so I explained that playing in the rain would not be safe. 

Right before it was time to get them to take a bath we had another rain shower come by. Even though I had been rejecting their requests to play in the rain the girl puts on her rain boots (on the wrong feet of course), puts on her rain jacket, and gets her umbrella. She showed up looking like this...

How could I say no to that? I couldn't. So she went outside on the deck. Then, the boy wanted to go too. His rain jacket is a few years old so he has outgrown it, but that didn't stop him from putting it on so he could join his sister.

I don't know what to do with all of this cuteness. 
Happy Friday y'all.

  1. Playing in the rain is so fun... and feels like such an indulgence of time in our hurried, busy lives. I think it's wonderful that your kids played in the rain and got to share that time with you! :)
