A two-year-old’s sunny outlook on rainy weather

A toddler teaches you that a (warm, gentle) rainfall is nothing to avoid. On Sunday, when the weather went from splendidly sunny to soggy, Adela didn’t care. She still wanted to be outside and explore, and enjoy the weird sensation of little drops of rain landing on her hair, skin and clothes. So I stood in the drizzle with her, and even took a couple of pictures that I’d normally not have photographed, because I’d be inside, staying dry. It’s a small trade-off for avoiding a tantrum, and it actually turned out to be fun.

A garden-variety spider hangs from her invisible web. Adela calls all spiders “itsy-bitsy” and will not stop saying it until one of us confirms that yes, she’s indeed looking at a real-life spider.

We've got a big crop of oxeye daisies this year (they're invasive, sadly).
