...i love it when it rains

One of my girls' favorite songs when they were little was "I Love It When it Rains" by the Wiggles. It was so soft, so soothing, and so relaxing.

I too love it when it rains. I miss a good midwestern thunderstorm... the smell, the thunder that rolls, the lightning that crashes. I remember when I was little, my mom would let my brother & I go out in the rain with our little umbrellas (it was clear, with an apple on it).... and we would stomp in the rain puddles. Afterwards, we made mud pies. Such wonderful memories...

Rain? What is rain? We don't get rain here in Texas anymore, especially in San Antonio. However, we DID get rain Friday after work. My girls have always wanted to play in the rain, and I can be such an uptight mom, and worry about the wet clothes, the wet floor, & the mud. I've learned to relax a bit, and let my girls have a little fun, even if it's a spur of the moment thing. Like last Friday. After dinner, I saw it started raining, so I ran outside to get a whiff of the smell. I wish I could bottle up that smell. Maddie came out to join me, and she looked at me, didn't say a word, and I knew exactly what she wanted to do. I laughed, and said "go ahead". She took off and had a blast in the rain. Katie joined her shortly after. The funniest thing they did was open their mouth to catch the rain. The rain only lasted 5 minutes, but I know they had the best five minutes of the day.... just by playing in the rain.

I love it when it rains
And I lie in bed at night
I listen to it patter
On the roof soft and light
But then a storm may come
And the thunder starts to crash
The rain beats on the window
And I see the lightening flash

I hold old teddy tight
And sink down in my bed
I close my eyes so tight
And pull the covers over my head
I feel so snug and warm
I know that everything’s all right
I love it when it rains
As I lie in bed at night

See? Wet as a dog, but happy as a clam!


  1. That is so cute! My girls love going out in the rain and playing in the puddles. I agree about bottling the smell. I just love the smell of rain.

  2. She sure looks like she enjoyed that! I love the rain too. Our kids love to jump on the trampoline while it rains.

  3. Girl we get more then we need of rain here. But I am with you on the mid-west thunder storms. They are the best.
