By nature I am a clean person. I don't like mud, being wet, or standing out in the cold.
But my children are different than me.
They enjoy mud and puddles and exploring.
Sometimes I need to let go of my inhibitions and just embrace the children's desire to explore and test the waters.
Ha! Get it? Waters? Oh dear, I kill myself with this stuff.
So last week it poured...POURED! But there was no lightening. So we headed on out for a walk in the rain with the dog.
So two excited kids, a jumping black lab, and lots of mud and puddles...yeah! What could be more fun?
They challenge me as a mother and a person every day. I always hope that they can change me with their joy rather than my personality ever turning them away from that joy.
Now to find some more puddles to jump through...
