I look out the window and remember the words from my favorite song by Oleg Gazmanov – I don’t like the rain. But before everything was different! Earlier. Before the advent of my long-awaited first daughter. Now I treat him more from a practical point of view! And before that – just on an emotional basis.
Life Before the appearance of the baby
Before the birth of my daughter, I loved the rain. I especially liked to get into bed with a hot tea and an interesting book at the weekend and to lie around the whole day without going outside. Or it is a pleasure to fall asleep in the rain, when its large drops hit the glass. I also liked being in the village in rainy weather – no hurry, a warm stove, a book – these were the most favorite moments of my life.
And now I have a different attitude to rain. I stopped loving him so much. No, I’m not talking about a brief warm rain, which, after the heat, washes away all the dust in the city and brings long-awaited coolness. And not about the mushroom rain, after which a rainbow appears. I speak of long torrential rains when it is gloomy and cold outside.
So why did my attitude towards the rain change with the appearance of the baby? And there are several reasons for this! And I want to share with you.
Life After the appearance of the baby
It turns out that babies are very sensitive to the weather. And the rain for us is a real disaster – we feel bad, act up all day, sleep badly. What good is this when the baby suffers. And with him, and mom.
And in rainy weather you can’t walk down the street with a pram or play in the playground. But on the street we spend at least three hours a day!
I think many mummies, whose children have already gone, will understand me. After two hours of staying in the walls of the apartment all upside down. But it’s okay, for me to remove everything is not a problem. But the child gets really bored! Already everywhere we climbed, we watched cartoons, exercised, slept. Now what?
And the regime of the child is broken! After all, we are accustomed to – woke up, ate and walked. And here everything is at home and at home! Boredom! You can, of course, go to some shopping center for a walk. But, again, the vagaries of the rain do not allow us to enjoy the outing.
Well, after the rain on the playground you will not go – solid dirt! And after all we are so drawn precisely there, we are accustomed to already, that there is fun, a lot of guys, a swing! And here it is impossible.
And, of course, the main disadvantage is colds. In such a slushy weather, getting sick with a cold is as simple as that!
The only moments of joy I get such a rain at night, when the daughter has already fallen asleep, and we, embracing, lie with her under a blanket and snuffle. This is where my sympathy for rainy weather ends.
Maybe when we are a little older, when the weather will not affect our condition, when we put on rubber boots and run through puddles or cut on a bicycle, I will love rain again. But not now! I don’t like rain now!
Mommies, do you like rain, as you may have loved before? And how do you hold a baby in four walls? Share, please – it’s already autumn!
