To a mom with three sporty active boys, a rainy day is both a gift and a curse. On one hand, it's like a Get Out of Jail Free card, as I am free from driving to and from any outdoor sport practice or game. This usually leaves me with a little extra time to, oh, I don't know, eat dinner.
On the other hand, dealing with the long faces, moaning, whining, and attempts to throw the baseball around a bit inside the house are not so fun.
I do welcome the occasional opportunity to wipe one or two items off my calendar for a reason that I have no control over.
