If you had told me it would have completely pissed down with rain this morning while I was out on my walk then I probably wouldn’t have gone. I especially wouldn’t have been keen if you had told me that Master S would have a massive tanty about having the rain cover over the pram and kick and scream to get it off and get completely saturated. A soaking wet 21 month old who already has a bit of a cough simply was not in my plan. But plan or not this was exactly our morning. Me and my kid soaking wet in the rain (with friends – they were wet too but had more compliant children who stayed dry).
But guess what else wasn’t in my plan? I didn’t plan for us to have an impromptu middle of the morning bath together which we wouldn’t have done if we weren’t wet and cold from being stuck in the rain. I can’t remember the last time I took the time to just chill out in a warm bath with my kid in the middle of they day. He had the time of his life (provided my legs didn’t touch him – hilarious) pouring water in and out of cups while I just sat back and relaxed under the bubbles. We chatted in our little two word sentences and just hung out.
It was a nice reminder that yeah sometimes life sucks and you get caught in the rain but that doesn’t mean a warm bath isn’t just around the corner.
