okay, so I didn’t get around to writing my riveting tale about my kitchen dust bunnies.

And now today, I am once again faced with what to write.

I could write about the rain pouring down.

But then I’d want to curl under a blanket and listen to it instead.

I could write about the yummy milkshakes I made yesterday (instead of blogging)

But then I’d want one (and we are out of ice cream)

I could write about the cutest boy that right now is sitting under his blanket watching a movie and sucking his knuckle.

But then I’d want to stop writing this post and go over and snuggle him.

Instead, I will write about the fact that right now, life seems, for the first time in a LONG time,┬ánormal. No one is sick. Not a single runny nose or belly ache. And the fact that I have nothing swirling around in this crazy brain of mine is so┬ánice. I know it may only last for the day. It may be the calm before a new storm. But I’ll take it and soak it up and relish it.

What’s your favorite rainy day activity to do with your kids?


  1. The Flip Flop Mamma! says

    If SlowMo is home on a rainy day we’ll watch movies and bake something. Otherwise, for me, a rainy day is just like every other day.

    I’m glad you’re feeling normal, you deserve it!

  2. Big Mama says

    Caroline has a ladybug tent and I love to put it up inside on rainy days, get some blankets and pillows and watch a movie with her.

  3. Hope you enjoyed your day of normalcy. I know I’m a bit behind in commenting! :v)

    My fave rainy day thing is make hot choc and kool aid popcorn and watch a movie with the kids.

  4. i think
    it will be
    to bake
    lots and lots of chocolate chip cookies.
    and make encouragement cards to send daddy at work.
    she’s only 14 months…so i haven’t got to use any of those yet.

  5. YUP…we are in the same “storm system” sister. That’s for sure.

    Will the sickness keep rolling forever? I think it’s taken all my reserve!

    You write well when you have nothing to say!

    (Okay, so that sounded bad…anyway, I was amused and that’s a good thing in the midst of it all!)
