Teaching my daughter to overcome life’s obstacles…the fun way!
Yesterday we experienced a torrential downpour from out of nowhere! It was sunny one minute, omnious clouds and an incredible downpour the next.
My daughter stood staring out of the window watching the rain pouring down in awe. Amused at the sight of her, I came up from behind her and whispered, “Are you afraid to go outside?” She answered, “Yeah! It’s pouring rain and I’d get wet. Look, mom, the streets are already flooding!”
I laughed and softly sighed. Then said, “It looks like it’s time to go dance in the rain!”
She looked at me like I was crazy.
I gave her a quick kiss and said, “We’re going to dance in the rain…go get the camera!”
Disclaimer: There was no thunder or lightning associated with this downpour!
The pictures below show our fun of dancing in the rain! The pictures may not show it, but it really was a torrential downpour!
She didn’t think I was going to do it.
….but I did! Give me a downpour and I will be out, dancing in it!!!
She laughed the entire time… Watching her crazy mom dance around, soaking herself in the rain…
Then I challenged her: You coming???
She screamed in delight, practically threw the camera and ran out into the rain….
And that is Parenting 101!!!! 🙂

I hope everyone feels the same! Life is too short to hide from the troubles it brings our way! We have to learn to find humor in the hard times, so that we can get through them and learn from them!
