What mothers do

Today it rained all day. Strange for Arizona. It only rains like five days a year here, and today was one of them. I don't like the rain, or more specifically I don't like being cold and wet. It can rain all it wants if I'm inside, warm and dry. Or in the summer when it rains and actually cools it down from broil to bake, then the rain is ok. Today was the not ok, cold and wet, I can't feel my toes rain that I can't stand. On top of that, I had to be out in it. All day.

Today my oldest had her first cheer competition. It was a really big deal for her. So I did what mothers do, I gave up staying warm and dry, and stood outside in the cold all day taking pictures of my daughter. Her team won second place. I'm so very proud.
