Rainy Days and Pies Never Get Me Down
Rain in Lala Land is almost nonexistent, so when it rained yesterday for the first time in forever, it was like a miracle. I expected manna to fall from the sky next or Noah in his Ark turning the corner outside my living room window. My son was so excited as he watched the rain fall outside. I half expected him to forget what rain was since I can’t remember the last time he saw it, except maybe on a Barney video.
I then did what any good mother would do and donned my son in his coat and rain boots that he squeezed into from last year and had only wore once or twice, and sent him out in the rain…to splash in the puddles of course.
After a run around in the rain, we made a pumpkin pie. Baking cookies is overrated. (And besides, I had to test out my pumpkin pie before Thanksgiving, and will probably have to “test it out” a few more times by Thanksgiving, too.) We had it for lunch…not the whole thing.
