Rainy days can be lonely but they have their perks. Little One gets all the puddles to herself. The slide is extra slippery on rainy days. I get to use my umbrella... Umbrellas make me think of Paddington Bear or Mary Poppins. There's something magical about them.
I have to tell you, getting kids ready to play outside on a rainy day is definitely a lot of effort. There's rain boots and rain jackets and rain pants and rain hats and waterproof mitts. A tip to all parents is to invest in a pair of Muddy Buddies They eliminate most of the steps in getting ready. You just throw them on over whatever your child is wearing and out the door you go. You can purchase them from any outdoor store such as Mountain Equipment Coop; I buy mine from Craigslist :)
