Rainy Day Blues

Ugh I hate rainy days!! At least ones that I feel like I could be much more productive if it weren't raining. Before I was a Mom, rainy days didn't bother me as much.  I would enjoy the time to sleep in, cuddle with my hubby, or read a book. But now as a Mom, I'm not as much intrigued by these rainy days, haha. Its a PAIN the pa-too-ty to run errands in the pouring down rain with a 7 month old. It just is. I don't want her to get sick, trying to manage a cart, keep her dry (and happy) and not get completely soaked myself just doesn't sound like fun. So Bella and I are staying in today despite the list of errands I want to run. So this rainy day has gotten me to think. What things as part-time or full-time stay at home moms do to keep themselves sane on rainy days? What things do you do with your kids on rainy days? Bella is only 7 months old, so she discovers new play items everyday which is really fun. She is starting to crawl and stand supported, so we do a lot of that. This morning was fun because Megan came over with her tiny one, Anastasia, and I helped Megs start an exercise plan. But now my afternoon plans of errands to Walmart (to get my .24 cents/can diced tomatoes and Kashi granola bars on sale) , Walgreens and library are on hold. I suppose I could do more laundry, or dishes or workout myself. But there is always something about the rain that makes me less motivated in general!

So on this rainy day, I encourage all of you to do something for yourself and if you have kids, good luck today! ;o)
