Mommy,"No dear, we are not supposed to go out."
She kept on asking me the same, I always said no.
Finally, the skies cleared off, I offered to take her out. But she preferred indoors.
Our first instinct is to look for the one thing that makes us really happy. We try for a while, failing to achieve that, settle down with what comes easy. What's funny is when finally the happy stuff is offered, we turn our back and continue with the new normal.
