One of those cold to the bone rainy days. The wind is blowing, the leaves are zipping by, the rain is pelting hard and cold and of course - wet. The house is feeling the effects, groaning under the wind.
It's that kind of day that you are glad to be home. A day when hot coffee, a burning fire (even from a fake fireplace) and a warm sweater are all that you need. Oh yes, most important of all - a little baby for cuddle time.
Before I had my son I remember experiencing days like this and imagining the future. I pictured myself and my future children hanging out in our pajamas, watching movies, baking cookies, just feeling cozy. I realize today that I am well on my way to living that dream fully. Granted my little boy is too small to even help stir the batter or have the attention span to watch a full movie with mommy, but we still can have a great day tucked away in our comfy house. I am a big advocate for getting out and about with baby, but sometimes it's just as important to stay home. It's days like this I am so glad that I became a mom!
- Stay dry. When the weather is beating down outside, snuggle up with your little one and put your feet up (as much as you can!)
- Plan ahead. There are lots of fun activities that you can do at home that you probably "never get around to" because of busy schedules and nice days. Have an idea of what you would like to do for the next day you stay home and follow through! It'll be a great day!
- Savor it. Mommy moments are fun and always passing us by. Soak them up!
