Today has been drizzly dreary weather indeed. The kind that makes it extra cozy to stay inside and snuggle up with an old quilt and a good book.
But I didn’t.
After preschool drop off I bundled up the baby and went walking with my friend. It wasn’t raining when we started and I was glad because, if it had been, we likely would have skipped our walk. But soon after we started it turned to a constant spittle rain that made the air feel even more fresh and alive than usual on a crisp fall day. It’s the kind of weather you don’t want to go in from, once you’ve already been out soaking it in.
So I was.
Out in it, I mean. After feeding the baby and doing preschool pick up and lunch with the husband and feeding the baby again I bundled up the little boys in the big stroller and set out on another walk. Like this morning, it started dry and then turned spittle-y. By the time I thought to put the rain cover on, both the baby and toddler were fast asleep and I would have had to jostle them around too much to cover them, so I checked to be sure their cheeks were warm and let their coats and blankets be enough. “The fresh air is good for them,” I told myself.
And for me too.
One thought on “Fresh Air”
Good for you!!! Like those Finnish mamas who always put their babies outside for nap time. (Or maybe it’s the Swedish mamas??) Anyway, I wish I could have been walking with you.
