So on my way back from the gym it was POURING rain. I’m talking raining cats and dogs, I’m talking a legit thunderstorm trying to power wash all the dirt and dust off my car. And you know what I thought about (aside from making it home safely of course) ?
It made me think about this one time I was visiting my family in Jamaica. We were at my grandma’s house out in the country. Her house sits on top of a hill and the yard gave us kids plenty of space to run around and burn off some energy. Anyway it started pouring down one day, so of course the Directv wasn’t working which meant we were moping around the house waiting for the rain to stop so we could either go outside or find something to watch on tv.
And the adults got tired of us looking like sad, bored puppies and they shooed us outside. We can go outside? What, but its raining? It’s only a little water they said. So we ran out there and danced in the pouring sheeting rain, we grabbed some shampoo and washed our hair in the rain and then we grabbed the soap and washed the cars in the rain too. It was sooo much fun I still remember it to this day. Little things like that are what I try to hold on to and remember when I’m playing with my mini; I want her to have fun things to remember and stories to tell.
