Ha! Listen To Your Mother - She's Usually Right

So there ;-)

I was right - it's raining today. Drizzly hazy stuff that not even an umbrella can protect against. Blech.

I'm trying not to gloat (about the being right thing) - it's wasted on a five and four year old anyway (better used with Hubby ;-)

Instead I tried to turn it into a lesson:

Me: "See? Aren't you glad I made you go outside yesterday in the sunshine? Look at it now! Yuck!"

Alyssa: "Yes but today we could use our umbrellas, Mummy!!"

It occurs to me now what my problem has been all along: I expect them to think like adults...

Haha, umbrellas? I'd totally be out there without one. I absolutely LOVE the rain...I go out to play in it just to get all wet. (provided I can then come inside and dry off, get into pajamas and curl up with a good book or watch a movie)

LOL it's the dry off part that I like!! Actually if I'm dressed properly I don't mind the rain. I hate having wet feet though...
