Funny lady and mama Amy Poehler was spotted having a grand time shopping with her son Archie this week, despite the stormy weather in Los Angeles. Amy's laid-back California mommy look is a far cry from her bright red one-shouldered Jay Godfrey gown at the Golden Globes, but decidedly more comfortable.

I've always found shopping and cruising town with my tots in harsh weather to be particularly stressful, so I tip my umbrella to Amy's effort to have fun and get her to-do list done amid raindrops. Do you encourage your children to play and carry on in the rain, or do you make up cabin fever games inside the cozy house?
