Our Anti-Rainy Day went something like this........
First, you need to get dressed in something that makes you feel good. Fix your hair and put on makeup. Little things like getting out of sweatpants really help kick me into gear. And lipstick- you can wear lipstick even if you haven't had a chance to shower. It helps.
With our rain boots on, we headed out to find puddles. If it's going to rain, puddle jump!
Sometimes you have to purposefully do those things that make you feel like a "good Mom". Know what I mean? For you, it might mean reading with your kids, getting down on the floor and playing, cooking with them or taking a walk with them.
When I bring out creativity in my children, that's one of the ways that I get that "good Mom" feeling and we all deserve to have that feeling. Motherhood comes with so much guilt and so many I-wish-I-could-do-that-over moments. Those feelings of inadequacy need to be counteracted! Do something intentional that you know brightens their day and also brightens yours.
Even if that means you just sort Fruit Loop colors together and talk. Little stuff like that matters.
Easy, colorful and the kids love the pictures that they made.
And these $3 yellow daisies? Well, they make me smile every time I look at them.
