Lick the Rain

Yesterday it rained.

And it rained alot.

I love the rain, but my preferred method of watching it is through a nice picture window while I'm snuggled up on a couch with a quilt (and most preferably, TC). Well there is no picture window, TC was at work and I had to go to the grocery store.

I decided that there was no way I was going to wrangle X-man and an umbrella (which we call an umbershoot at my house) into the store, so I put on his coat that has a hood and I put on a cute rain coat of mine with a hood and headed out.

And the rain picked up as we got to the store. I got out of the car and allowed my tookus to get soaked while I unbuckled X-man from his car seat. Thank you for leaving your socks on, mister!

I picked him up and protectively snuggled his little face in my shoulder so as to not get all wet. He didn't want any of that. The rain was fun. He pulled his head back and proceeded to lick the rain.

Tongue in and out licking the rain off his lips, off his coat hood and straight out of the sky.

I laughed all the way into the grocery store! And then I got to laugh all the way to the car!

Leave it to a baby to make me not care that I'm soaking wet from the waist down!

Your kid can lick the rain, but mine can make me drink Tequilla straight from the bottle! I have memories of peace and quiet.

That is too cute! Enjoy these blissful moments in the rain cause in now time he will be happily splashing in puddles getting himself completely wet...right before you had to be somewhere! :)
