Rain Dance

Yesterday, Katie did a rain dance.

Or, at least, she was dancing in the rain. If I believed in that stuff, I would say that it was pretty effective, because it is supposed to rain for the rest of the (work) week!

So, instead of our planned trip to the park, we went to the mall. At 8:30 a.m. the mall is grandparent heaven! If your kid’s grandparents live far away or you just need a few extra pairs, stop by the mall early in the morning while they are all taking their power walks. Your child will be fawned over and adored like you wouldn’t believe!

After that we went to the indoor playground, which was full of mothers whose plans were also thwarted by the rain. Fortunately, they brought their kids, so Katie was very entertained : – )

See?

Despite the fact that she really was having a good time I was barely able to catch a smile on camera. Usually she is very expressive, but today she was so subdued I barely recognized her. Maybe the rain had something to do with it. Here’s a halvsie that I pried out of her with a raisin bribe.

What happened next (or actually, what did not happen next) almost derailed the whole day . . . no nap. Before Katie came into my life I thought napping during the day was an indulgent luxury, if not downright lazy. Now I consider it an absolute necessity at least a few days a week. After driving her around in the car for almost an hour and being truly close to a mommy meltdown, I was rescued by Daniel. For some ***inexplicable*** reason he decided to work from home today.

And that’s it, folks!
