One of the beauties of being a mom is being able to see the world through your child's eyes.

Today, for the first time "in real life" Marielle saw and felt hail. Not that long ago, we were sitting in the living room, fire roaring, watching a TIVO'd version of Sunday Morning when suddenly, it was raining hard outside. Our eyes were drawn from the TV to the storm outside. Then, it happened. The rain turned into hail.

I said, "It's hailing" and grabbed Marielle and we rushed out the front door and into the storm. Neither one of us stopped to think that she was barefoot but maybe that just enhanced the experience. We reached out to the little bits of ice falling from the sky. I grabbed as many pieces as I could and threw them into Marielle's hands.

And we laughed and danced in the hail.

  1. Isn't it great to get to witness kids experiencing new experiences. My grand-daughters saw snow for the first time when in December it snowed in Baton Rouge for the first time in 20 years.
