“A portrait of my child, once a week, every week, in 2014.”
Olivia: We had a really quick storm roll through our area this afternoon. I love the rain and storms fascinate me so when it started, I went to the back door just to see how hard it was really coming down. As I opened the door, you ran past me yelling, “I wanna go in the rain, Mama!” Your Dad and I looked at each other and silently agreed that we weren’t gonna make you come in right away. What kind of parents would we be if we didn’t let you dance in the rain a little? (Truthfully, I was just glad you had shoes on because minutes earlier we were cleaning out the basement.) The 7 minutes of heaven you endured by a little rain play is one of the things I love most about you- the little things are what truly make you happy, my sweet girl. I hope to always be able to give you that little slice of happiness and I hope you always love to dance in the rain.
