When I was up at 5am this morning for one of my many nightly bathroom visits, I heard it raining outside but I was hoping for clear skies when I woke up so I could fit in an outdoor run before Faith's dance class. It was gloomy when we got up, but I thought I could still do it. I looked at Weather.com and it said "Cloudy" and the radar map didn't have any green blobs, so I got our stuff ready to go. As you can tell, I have a deep technical grasp of meteorology.
Despite the lack of green blobs on the radar map, it started raining during our run and I stupidly left the stroller weather shield at home. I normally always have it with me, but I took it out to lighten my load for the 5K a couple of weeks ago and forgot to put it back in. So I got to be Mother of the Year with her kid out in the rain, but at least it was warm and she thought it was hilariously fun. I had to turn around early and only got 2ish miles down instead of 4.
Faith's second dance class was just as funny as her first one. I brought my camera, but forgot it in the car so I only have the picture of the face she makes when I make her leave the dance studio when the class is over:
|I don't WANNA go home! I wanna DANCE!|
I did brighten her day when I shared my latest pregnancy craving with her at lunch: Cookie Crisp!
|Whole grains my ass, these are COOKIES!|
|Peanut appreciates my throwing arm even if Mommy yells at me.|
My kid might have a future in softball because she has quite the throwing arm on her. She was able to peg the dog in the face with a piece of cereal, which if you're wondering...is HILARIOUS if you're a toddler.
Once I was done eating sugary cereal with the kid, I put her down for a nap and ran 5.3 miles on the treadmill to make it an even 7.5 miles for the day. I actually had a good run today. There is a lot to be said for taking a complete rest day (like yesterday) and I should probably do that more often. I'm not too quick on the uptake and have to learn lessons over and over again, so you'll probably hear me say "It turns out that rest days are a GOOD idea!" again at some point in the near future.

Have you ever been caught in the rain because the weather forecast lied to you?
