So for those of you keeping score at home -- Mommy: 1, Dangerous World: 0!
I think I did give me and Kevin a few more grey hairs, though.
The upside of it being rainy is that, well, it's rainy. And I like rain oh so much. The baby is swaddled and napping now (ditto puppy), and I've eaten some leftover rice and curry, so I'm all comfy and peaceful. Later today Jed is coming by to work with me, and later still, Alex is coming by for chatting and board games. The next hour or so is dishes and laundry and other similar domestic tasks, good for doing on a rainy day with a second or third cup of tea. We'll get a mat for that bit of tiled floor, now that we know it's a hazard, and then we can enjoy the moisture-rich air, the cool drops, the crisp autumn breezes in peace. I've been intermittently trying to write a lullaby for Ms. K., which hasn't been going so well. Maybe it needs some rain in.
