Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

Rain is one of those surprising reasons I love having kids. Staying home is this super fun pajama, cupcake and cartoon festival. And going out involves an adorable wardrobe of mismatched items inspired by animals and fruit.

On this particular rainy day, Gabriella insisted on carrying a small container instead of her frog umbrella. As I ran her from house to car, from car to store, I felt her warm puppy breathe on my neck while she held out the container to catch raindrops. And that’s when—if my life were a movie—I would push a button on the jukebox and “My Girl" by The Temptations would begin to play.
