Playing in the rain, finally.

Friday, May 28, 2010

My daughter and I just finished playing in the rain. After a long dry spell, we finally had rain. It poured though it didn't last for more than 10 minutes. I love rain, but apparently, my little one is scared of the sound it made as it hit our roof.

My mom wanted her to see the rain to conquer her fear so she took her to the door. Voila! She opened the door and wanted to step out! I immediately changed my clothes and removed her nappy then took her outside.

The drops were icy cold!! Each drop was huge and coming down real fast. At first she got scared of being wet but since she saw I was happy and smiling, I guess she tried to enjoy it too. My mom then took out her small umbrella to play with. Although she was already soaked, like a princess she still held the umbrella over her head.

Then after maybe 3 minutes, I saw her legs shaking. I quickly carried her so I'd transfer my body heat to her. I asked if she felt cold, "Yes" was her reply. I asked if she wanted to go in already, a vehement "No".

I saw puddles of water quickly forming in the street so I decided to open the gate. As we didn't have any garage doors nor any roofing in our carport, walking to the gate on washed cement carrying a 12kg toddler on your arm proved to be quite a feat. She was so happy seeing the water splash everywhere as tires sped through the puddles. She was also intrigued by other children playing in the rain.

After some time, I decided to take her in, against her will. It was a belief that getting soaked by rain in May can cure prickly heat. But ice cold rain?? I think a few minutes was enough for her. I'd rather have some prickly heat on her than have her have a cold because of it.

How I wish that when we do get our own house constructed, we'd have one of those fancy electric garage doors. Aside from keeping our vehicles (and some other things) safe and dry, it would be easier to just push a button, see the door go up and watch the raindrops from the garage.

Now off to check out some garage door prices! Have a great Friday everyone! Registered & Protected
