I really like the rain. I mean, it's great for the plants and is a perfect excuse to lounge in sweats, read books, and make chili for dinner. Rain with a 2yrold is a bit different. It's still fun, but you need an outlet come the middle of the day. The second the rain ceased, I took little Jack outside to burn off some of that energy!! It was so fun and wet and giggle-y. And the activity made for an appropriately long afternoon nap (during which I did NOTHING but read!!! Housework, schmousework.)!
